Active Brain Atlas

Construction of an active digital atlas of the mouse brain, with current emphasis on the brainstem. This is a full stack project that spans from data acquisition to imaging processing to computational anatomy. Involves Prof. Y. Freund in CSE, Prof. D. Kleinfeld in Physics and Neurobiology, and their professional associates.
