This is the homepage for the NeuronBank project, an effort to develop an online reference source and informatics tool for exploring our vast knowledge of identified neurons and the circuits they form. NeuronBank will organize information about identified neuron location, physiology, morphology, and connectivity, and help researchers to browse through known circuits, conduct comparative work between species, and classify new cell types. You can learn more about the rationale and design of the project here.
The database is no longer being maintained due to lack of funding.
All of the information about the neurons is available on the NeuronBank Wiki (neuronbank.org/wiki)
The NeuronBank project was developed as a collaborative effort across the Neuroscience Institute and the Computer Science Department at Georgia State University. The project team is led by Paul S. Katz, Sushil Prasad, Raj Sunderraman, and Ying Zhu.
The project was funded by a grant from the Human Brain Project (NIH,NIMH R21 MH076753). The project was initiated with a seed grant from the GSU Brains and Behavior program. Additional funding was provided by NSF, NIH/NINDS, and the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience.
