Waxholm Space Atlas of the C57BL/6J Mouse Brain

Here you can download image volumes representing the canonical Waxholm Space (WHS) adult C57BL/6J mouse brain. These images include T1-, T2*-, and T2-Weighted MR volumes (generated at the Duke Center for In-Vivo Microscopy), Nissl-stained optical histology (acquired at Drexel University), and a volume of labels. All volumes are represented at 21.5μ isotropic resolution.

The label volume represents phase one delineations of the WHS mouse brain. The atlas contains 26 structures (+ inner ear) organized in accordance with the NeuroLex Brain Partonomy scheme found at: http://neurolex.org/wiki/Brain_Partonomy... The delineations are intended as a communication aid for finding brain locations. Delineations are based on visually distinguishable features and are not intended to impose a specific view of brain structure or function.
