Scalable Brain Atlas

The INCF Scalable Brain Atlas ( is a web-based, interactive brain atlas viewer, containing a growing number of atlas templates for various species, including mouse, macaque, marmoset and human. Standard features include fast brain region lookup, point and click to select a region and view its full 3D extent, mark a stereotaxic coordinate and view all regions in a hierarchy.

Built-in extensions are the CoCoMac plugin, which provides a spatial display of Macaque connectivity, and a service to transform stereotaxic coordinates to and from the INCF Waxholm space for the mouse. Three dimensional renderings of brain regions are available through a Matlab interface (local installation of Matlab required).

The SBA is designed to be customizable. External users can create plugins, hosted on their own servers, to interactively attach images or data to spatial atlas locations.
