Ferretome - Ferret brain connectivity database

a database of anatomic connections and architectonic features of the ferret brain

The main goals of this database are:

  • to assemble structural information on the ferret brain that is currently widely distributed in the literature or in in-house laboratory databases into single resource which is open to the scientific community;
  • to create techniques for the representation of quantitative and raw data;
  • to expand existing database ontologies in order to accommodate further neuroarchitecture information for identifying essential relations between brain structure and connections.
