    The Whole Brain Catalog is a ground-breaking, open-source, 3-D virtual environment developed by a team of researchers from UC San Diego under the Whole Brain Project.

    The Catalog aims to connect members of the international neuroscience community to facilitate solutions for today’s intractable challenges in brain research through cooperation and crowd sourcing.

    Users of the Whole Brain Catalog can:

    - Fit data of any scale into the international standard atlas coordinate system for spatial brain mapping, the “Waxholm Space.”
    - View brain slices, neurons and their animation, neuropil reconstructions, and molecules in appropriate locations
    - View data up close and at a high resolution
    - View their own data in the Whole Brain Catalog environment
    - View data within a semantic environment supported by vocabularies from the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) at
    - Contribute code and connect personal tools to the environment
