This wiki is a resource for the brain tracing guidelines used to create structural labels for the ANN.

April 2014 - Jacquie Marietta and Kathy Jones



Documents describing the brain structure tracing guidelines used in the ANN.  Some documents have added notes by Research Assistants that were used in the tracing those structures.
