BrainMapsViz


BrainMapsViz is a suite of state-of-the-art web applications supporting the exploration of the fruit fly brain datasets. Among others, BrainMapsViz provides interactive visualization of the adult and larva connectomics, synaptomics and neurophysiology datasets. The key application underlying BrainMapsViz is NeuroNLP.

NeuroNLP

In NeuroNLP, neurons in the NeuroArch databases can be queried based on the neuropil that they reside in, their innervation/connection pattern and their neurotransmitter type. For example, to query and visualize the glutamatergic local neurons in the antennal lobe, one can simply type the query: show glutamatergic local neurons in AL. A flexible GUI provides additional power to refine the control of circuit visualization.
