Assignment: Neuroanatomy Project

Imagine that you are working in a neurology clinic. One of the neurologists tells you that as his or her practice is expanding, he or she is having difficulty meeting the education needs of his or her patients. Part of this problem is explaining the basic neuroanatomical structures to the patients in layperson’s language so that they understand their diagnoses and their underlying neurological impairments. The neurologist asks you to create a written guide for the patients, including both the CNS and the PNS. He or she describes what the basic neuroanatomical structures are, where they are located, how they interact, and what function they serve.

He or she asks you to name the structures by using the correct technical language but to use layperson’s language as much as possible elsewhere.

Your neuroanatomy guide should cover the following:

  • Basic neuroanatomical structures (including the CNS and the PNS, as well as the structural packaging that protects the brain from the environment)
  • Locations of these structures
  • Functions they serve (what functions damage to these areas may affect)
  • How they interact

Be sure to explain the information in layperson’s language and use graphics and pictures where helpful. Use APA format when citing material from scholarly sources such as your textbook and online notes. Include a cover page and a reference page listing the resources you used to create your guide.

Your response should be at least 2 pages long

applied & theoretical

Interdisciplinary collaboration in neuroscience


Open Science PrizeOur project Open Neuroimaging Laboratory was 1 of the 6 selected for Phase 1 of the , sponsored by the Wellcome Trust, the NIH, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. We presented a project in collaboration with Amy Robinson from , Katja Heuer from the  and Satrajit Ghosh from .

We proposed to develop a collaborative environment that would allow anyone with a web browser to analyse MRI data available anywhere online: Amazon, Figshare, DropBox, Zenodo, GitHub, etc. We presented a prototype of our web app  for collaborative segmentation.

Each of the 6 selected projects received 80kUSD to develop their project. The projects will be demonstrated next December, when one of them will pass to Phase 2: 230k USD to complete the winning project.

[email protected]Last February our group hosted the interdisciplinary workshop  at the Institut Pasteur. We were close to 80 researchers, clinicians and artists working 24h/24 on different projects related to neuroscience.

We had the opportunity to explore the sonification of real-time EEG data, to work together on the segmentation of the brains from our , and we had tutorials on brain tractography, functional parcellation of the brain and genomics.

We used Slack to initiate and coordinate our projects, many of which are still under active development.

The Brain Catalogue: An open portal for comparative neuroanatomy researchThe  is a project to create an open-access catalogue of high-quality vertebrate brain MRI.

We are currently scanning and processing the collection of vertebrate brains from the  de Paris, and building online tools to visualise and analyse the data, collaboratively.


• Our project  was accepted by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche in France and the Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek, which will allow us to create an online atlas of the development of the ferret brain, and to further the development of
