Rat Brain-Connectome

About

ChemNetDB is an open access constantly evolving neurochemical connectivity database obtained from the rat brain. By utilizing advanced neuroinformatics methods, we have integrated over 50 years of neuroanatomical and neurochemical research on rat brain into a consistent, brain-wide, multi-scale neurochemical cerebral connectome. This connectome differs from the previously suggested neuronal networks of rat brain in two major aspects:

  1. it integrates information on transmitter systems and receptors on the network topology;
  2. it is unbiased and hypothesis-free as the connectome was obtained by consistent and systematic procedures without a priori assumptions.
