Surface-Based Atlases
Washington University School of Medicine
Surface-based atlases of human, macaque, and mouse cerebral and cerebellar cortices developed in our laboratory can be downloaded by direct hyperlink connections to our WebSuMS database (see below) and can be viewed using our freely available Caret software. Each atlas contains a growing compendium of experimental data pertaining to the structural and functional organization of the cortices.
