This is a graph with borders and nodes. Maybe there is an Imagemap used so the nodes may be linking to some Pages.

Cognitive Atlas is collaborative knowledge building project to develop a database with definition of cognitive concepts.

The project is lead by Russell Poldrack.


[edit] OWL

An OWL file is available from BioPortal. As of summer 2012 the lastest version is 0.3:

The OWL defines URIs such as "" which may be associated with an identifier such as "cnt_4dfa838286e12".

These identifiers can be used to construct links to the Cognitive Atlas ontology.

[edit] SPARQL

The knowledge base has a SPARQL endpoint:


   { ?s <> ?o . }
 LIMIT 100

[edit] Links

In the Brede Wiki topics with corresponding concepts in the Cognitive Atlas are lists in the category Topics in Cognitive Atlas.

[edit] Python

Using Python's rdflib.

[edit] Terms in Cognitive Atlas

from rdflib import Graph, URIRef
url = ''
graph = Graph()
graph.parse(url, format='n3')
wanted_predicates = set([URIRef(''),
terms = set([object.value for subject, predicate, object in graph if predicate in wanted_predicates])
