Imaging of the pial arterial vasculature of the human brain in vivo using high-resolution 7T time-of-flight angiography

Our latest work is out in eLife: https://elifesciences.org/articles/71186 We show how small pial arteries can be targeted effectively with high-resolution in vivo MR imaging. The data is openly available (https://doi.org/10.17605/OSF.IO/NR6GC) and may be used for building models of brain physiology. The pial arterial vasculature of the human brain is the Read more…

TOMCAT dataset on Oracle Open Data

Oracle Cloud recently launched a platform to host scientific datasets and we uploaded our unique Hippocampus dataset (Towards Optimising MRI Characterisation of Tissue (TOMCAT) Dataset including all Longitudinal Automatic Segmentation of Hippocampal Subfields (LASHiS) data – ScienceDirect): https://opendata.oraclecloud.com/ords/r/opendata/opendata/details?data_set_id=28&bucket_name=TOMCAT&prefix=&clear=RR&session=610618357889967&cs=1o7GdDLNfm3PHWwxI2thFXrA8jHPcvjZCdFibkYYIPPofNfOuvVt8B6S0B7YTnzIOf6cDk9BXW5hSV9b8LmhoQA More background can be found in this blogpost: Oracle Open Data platform Read more…

Zotero and Cloudstor

Zotero is an open source reference and citation management tool that probably everyone knows and loves. Zotero stores the PDFs of publicaitons and books and when you want to keep your library synchronized you need some central storage. Now it’s important to stress that it’s a very bad idea to Read more…
