Explore the Macaque Monkey Brain Atlas in siibra-explorer - the EBRAINS interactive atlas viewer

The EBRAINS macaque monkey brain atlas integrates multiple aspects of brain organisation, represented by complementary maps of structure, function and connectivity. They are defined across the multiple spatial and temporal resolutions resulting from in vivo functional to post mortem structural datasets. The atlas can be explored using the 3D Interactive Atlas Viewer, as well as through different programmatic interfaces (e.g. enabling flat-map representations) soon to be available on EBRAINS.

  • Enter an online framework that lets you explore the macaque brain in its different dimensions - including cyto-, myelo- and receptor architecture as well as function
  • Examine interindividual variability of functionally defined brain regions (e.g. probabilistic retinotopic maps)
  • Get easy access to multimodal data features for different brain regions

Explore the different facets of macaque brain organization

The multilevel macaque brain builds on the MEBRAINS Template, a nonlinear symmetric population-based monkey template which reflects the macroanatomical scale as a unifying principle of organization. The MEBRAINS Template can be used for the analysis of functional imaging and whole-brain connectivity studies, and also serves as anchorage for the MEBRAINS Cytoarchitectonic Maps, which are defined at the microscopic scale and constitute reference volumes of interest for anatomical assignment of neuroimaging signals. MEBRAINS Cytoarchitectonic Maps are complemented with information on the densities of 14 different receptors for multiple classical neurotransmitters, representing a mesoscopical scale of brain organisation. Thus, different brain regions are characterised by a growing selection of multimodal data features spanning multiple structural and time scales.
