Talairach Daemon
Research Imaging Institute, UTHSC San Antonio
The Talairach Daemon (TD) is a high-speed database server for querying and retrieving data about human brain structure over the internet. TD data is searched using x-y-z coordinates resolved to 1x1x1 mm volume elements within a standardized stereotaxic space. An array, indexed by x-y-z coordinates, that spans 170 mm (x), 210 mm (y) and 200 mm (z), provides high-speed access to data. Array dimensions were selected to be approximately 25% larger than those of the Co-planar Stereotaxic Atlas of the Human Brain (Talairach and Tournoux, 1988). Coordinates tracked by the TD server are spatially consistent with the Talairach Atlas.

Software tools include an on-line applet with graphics, fully downloadable Java versions of the TD with graphics and database, and several command line tools for those without graphics capabilities.
