Brede Database is a neuroinformatics database with results from published neuroimaging studies. It features search on Talairach coordinates. It is available from

Functions from the Brede Toolbox are able to read data associated with the Brede Database. The XML files of the Brede Database are also distributed along with the Brede Toolbox. Papers in the Brede Wiki that is also listed in the Brede Database is recorded in the Papers in Brede Database category.

The different forms of visualizations construct on the Web pages of the Brede Database are described in Visualizing data mining results with the Brede tools.[1] The database was introduced in a abstract for the Human Brain Mapping conference.[2]

Parts of the Brede Database are federated into the Web database service provided by the Neuroscience Information Framework.

It is developed and maintained by Finn Årup Nielsen.


[edit] Database struture

There are several structures in the Brede Database for organizing the data. The main structure is describing neuroimaging articles and have one or more "experiments" that is turns have one or more "location", i.e., structures for Talairach coordinates and their associated statistical information. Two other structures are for brain regions and "external components" i.e., topics such as cognitive component.

[edit] Experiment

The experiment structure ('Exp') is modeled after the associated structure in the early version of BrainMap.

Brede Database identifier for each experiment
Should always be 'exp' for this type of structure
Short description/title of the experiment
Longer description
Organization that performed the experiment
Task in the experiment, modeled after BrainMap, see also CogPO
Number of subjects in the experiment
Behavioral domain, modeled after BrainMap, see also CogPO.
Template/stereotaxic space, e.g., CBA, HBA, MNI, SPM95, Talairach
Brain scanner
If positron emission tomography study, then the radiotracer.
Identifier for Brede Database 'external component', i.e., topic of the experiment. There might be multiple 'woext's. See also
Identifier for Brede Database 'external component', e.g., if the experimental contrast was rest minus activation.

[edit] Brain regions

The taxonomy/ontology of brain regions is recorded in an XML file called worois.xml [1]. In this file each brain region is recorded in a Roi XML node with the following fields (XML tags). See also Brede Database/WOROI.

Brede Database integer identifier for the brain region
Canonical name for the brain region
Zero or multiple abbreviations for the brain region
Zero or multiple string identifiers for corresponding regions in the CoCoMac database.
Identifier for the ICBM labeled brain. This atlas may not be available (or have changed?)
Optional integer identifier for the BrainInfo/NeuroNames Web service for the corresponding brain regino
Optional text description of the brain region
Optional corresponding region in the Internet Brain Volume Database.
Optional identifier for the atlas of Alexander Hammers. This atlas may not be public available.
Optional string identifier for the corresponding term in the MeSH
Identifier for the atlas of Claus Svarer.
A field always set to roi.
Optional identifier for the Automatic Anatomical Labeling (AAL) atlas.
Zero or multiple abbreviations for the brain region
Optional title of article in Wikipedia corresponding to the brain region
Zero or more identifiers for taxonomic broader brain regions, usually indicating part of relation.
Zero or more identifiers for taxonomic narrower brain regions, usually indicating has part relation.

For brain regions in the Brede Wiki that is also in the Brede Database see the category Brain regions in Brede Database. For brain regions missing the Brede Database see the category Brain regions missing in Brede Database.
