Content, applications, functionality and availability in terms for evolution of human brain atlases.
Human brain atlases have evolved significantly, driven by sophisticated imaging techniques, advanced brain mapping methodologies, huge data, analytical tactics, and powerful computers, and spurred recently by brain large projects. In contrast to previous studies that focus just on material, we can break down this progression into four categories: content, applications, functionality, and availability. Early cortical maps print stereotactic atlases, early digital atlases, and advanced brain atlas platforms are differentiated, as are five avenues in electronic atlases covering the previous two generations. New electronic atlases are divided into eight categories based on their scope, parcellation, modality, plurality, scale, ethnicity, abnormality, and a combination of these factors.Author(s): Shawn Kruger
