Elsevier's 3D Brain Experience: Your Map for Brain Based Research and Education using Detailed Images and Anatomy
Elsevier's BrainNavigator is an advanced 3D brain program that maps brain images and anatomy in a way that is perfect for brain based education and research. Offering both free and subscription-based content, it combines the Allen Institute for Brain Science's 3D brain visualization technologies with Elsevier's vast library of brain reference materials including the world renowned brain atlases authored by leading cartographers, George Paxinos, Charles Watson, Keith Franklin. Not only will researchers have access to traditional brain map representations—all served and easily accessed online—they will also gain a powerful 3D, multi-dimensional tool for brain visualization.
With Elsevier's BrainNavigator, brain research updates and new information are included and immediately available enabling fast, easy, and accurate identification of brain structures of the rat brain, mouse brain and other species. These important tools help neuroscientists make critical strides in human brain research.
The Benefits of an Interactive 3D Mapping Tool for Brain Based Research
As registered users of BrainNavigator, neuroscientists and educators will experience a seamless transition in their laboratory settings from just relying on texts to utilizing a true online workflow tool that harnesses the power of new technology. The advantages in this type of brain based education and research include teaching and research capabilities that enhance traditional methods by providing:
- 3D brain imaging that allows manipulation of brain atlas data and content to shorten information gathering and investigation times.
- The ability to evaluate and annotate their own brain research data using brain maps and other data.
- Common nomenclature that allows comparisons of 3D rat brains and mouse brains. Other species, including human, will be added for the growing number of neuroscientists who are working with varying species.
- 3D interactive brain images and visualizations that can be sliced to significantly enhance training and understanding of the brain's anatomy.
- High resolution brain images, illustrations and photographs that are immediately available for comparison.
- A brain research tool where users can input and save information about specific subject animals to more closely match BrainNavigator coordinates.
- Plentiful links to reference material including journal articles in ScienceDirect and Elsevier's vast collection of neuroscience books.
