A digital three-dimensional atlas of structure/function relationships

J Chem Neuroanat. Sep-Oct 1991;4(5):313-8. doi: 10.1016/0891-0618(91)90039-f.


The techniques and issues relevant to the development of a digital three-dimensional atlas of brain structure and function are discussed. The goals were to develop the appropriate methods for an interactive and quantitative stereotactic atlas to describe both anatomy and physiology. The work presented here used serial sections from unstained, thionein-stained and 2-deoxyglucose autoradiographic data sets.
