The website features a detailed, interactive connectome of a small part of the brain.

DOI:  10.21942/uva.19786213.v1 

The website contains:

  • a connectome of the hippocampal formation, the parahippocampal region and the amygdala of the rat
  • a short neuroanatomical descriptions of the hippocampal formation, the parahippocampal region and the amygdala are provided. 
  • an overview of neuroanatomical tract tracing
  • a nomenclature dictionary to translate autor nomenclature  into a standard nomenclature of brain areas.
