A measure of the left/right asymmetry.
It is presently based on a binomial test.
||Brodmann area. Cytoarchitectonic parcellation of the
cerebral cortex. These are group under WOROI: 43 - Brodmann area.
||A 'bib' item corresponds to a bibliographic item, - in
most cases a scientific article. In the Brede Database each
of these items are identified by the 'WOBIB' identifier. In
most cases the 'bib' item has a corresponding entry in the
||BrainMap is a database from Peter
T. Fox and Jack Lancaster from the Research Imaging Center,
Texas. A few of the items in the Brede Database corresponds to
items in the original BrainMap database.
There is a new
BrainMap database, but the items of the Brede Database
is not link to that.
||Digital Object Identifier. The DOI is used by publishers
to identify, e.g., a specific scientific paper.
As an example 'DOI: 10.1038/33402' refers to a paper by
Epstein and Kanwisher.
In the Brede Database the web-link associated with DOI is
resolved through http://dx.doi.org which will
usually forward the web-browser to the full text.
||fMRI Data Center identifier. Some of the items in the
Brede Database correspond to items in the fMRI Data Center, of
Jack Van Horn and
Michael S. Gazzaniga,
See, e.g., WOBIB:
There is an fMRI Data center indentifier index.
||'Hammers' refers to the digital human brain
parcellation of Alexander Hammers et al., where 43 areas
are defined. The numbers refer to the integer values in
the volume ANALYZE file (|
provided by Alexander Hammers.
||Independent component analysis.
ICA of the voxelized 'exp' and 'bib' structures.
Heading is a controlled vocabulary thesaurus from the
National Library of Medicine. Each item has a unique
identifier and some of them corresponds to an 'ext' item
in the Brede Database (identified with WOEXT).
||Non-negative matrix factorization.
NMF of the voxelized 'exp' and 'bib' structures.
||PubMed identifier. The identifier used in the
PubMed service of the American National Library of
Medicine to identify a scientific article. The web-link
associated with PMID in the Brede Database will lead to the
PubMed web-page with the abstract of the paper
||PNG is an image file format.
||"Svarer" is a digital human brain parcellation
by Claus Svarer and colleagues, see the
Svarer index for overview of defined regions and reference.
||Singular value decomposition.
SVD of the voxelized 'exp' and 'bib' structures.
||Talairach is the coordinate system and space for the
human brain defined in the book by Jean Talairach and
Pierre Tournoux: Co-planar Stereotaxic Atlas of the
Human Brain from 1988.
It defines the origo at the anterior commisure and x is
the left/right axis with left being negative, y is the
posterior/anterior with posterior being negative, and
z is inferior/superior with inferior as
The so-called MNI-space is slightly different from the
original Talairach space, - it is a bit larger. The
coordinates in the Brede Database is usually reported
with reference to the original Talairach space.
||"Tzourio-Mazoyer" is a digital human brain
parcellation also referred to as AAL.
Tzourio-Mazoyer index for overview of defined regions and reference.
||Virtual Reality Modeling Language. A file format for
interactive 3-dimensional models. These can be viewed
with with VRML-browsers such as Octaga Player
Cosmo Player or
VRML2, also called VRML97, is the second version of this file format.
||Brede Database identifier for a 'bib' structure, i.e., a
paper (scientific article). This contains one of more 'exp' structures.
A WOBIB index is available
||Brede Database identifier for a 'exp' structure, i.e., an
experiment in a scientific paper.
This can, e.g, correspond to a 'contrast'.
An 'exp' structure might have one or more 'loc' structures.
A WOEXP index is available
||Brede Database identifier for a 'ext' structure:
An 'external component', e.g., a cognitive component.
Each 'exp' structure in the Brede Database will usually have
one or more WOEXT associated with it.
||Brede Database identifier for a 'per' structure:
a person, usually an author of a scientific paper.
||Brede Database identifier for a 'roi' structure:
a region of interest, i.e., a brain area referred to by lobar
anatomy, or a functional or Brodmann area.
