VIEW THE BRAIN LIKE NEVER BEFORE
The brain is the most complicated structure known to man. Neuroscientists work daily to understand this marvel of nature. To help these busy scientists advance and streamline their research, Elsevier has created BrainNavigator, an online, interactive, 3D software tool that saves time while improving the quality of day-to-day research.
With BrainNavigator, the expertise of widely respected and referenced publications come together to enhance understanding of brain structures and allow you take full advantage of the most current research available. With multi-user accessibility through the Internet, BrainNavigator is available 24/7.
A collaboration of two leaders in neuroscience information
BrainNavigator is the result of a partnership between two highly influential sources in the scientific community: Elsevier and The Allen Institute for Brain Science, offering a mixture of free and subscription product content with this product. Elsevier's vast neuroscience content fuels the system and includes information from its popular ScienceDirect platform and several brain atlases including George Paxinos and Charles Watson's The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, the 6th highest ranked book on the ISI Web of Science. Creator of the Allen Brain Atlas, the Allen Institute for Brain Science is a non-profit medical research organization offering free publicly available resources to advance brain research worldwide.
BrainNavigator represents a great advance in the workflow tools available to researchers. You are no longer limited to print-based atlases that are difficult to use in the lab and limited in their content. Print-based information ages quickly and with BrainNavigator, updates are available online immediately, enabling fast, easy and accurate identification, marking, and visualization of brain structures.
Beyond the significant content benefit, the system also:
- Provides software tools allowing manipulation of atlas data and 3D content to shorten information gathering and investigation times
- Includes free content within 3D browser and select 2D images
- Allows the user's own research data to be visually compared to other data and be annotated
- Uses common nomenclature, allowing comparison of species for the growing number of neuroscientists working with several model species
- Delivers 3D visualizations, powered by the Allen Institute's Brain Explorer technology, that can be sliced to significantly enhance training and understanding of brain structures
