The Online Brain Atlas Reconciliation Tool

The Online Brain Atlas Reconciliation Tool (OBART) aims to provide a quantitative solution to the so-called neuroanatomical nomenclature problem by comparing overlap relations between regions defined as spatial entities in different digital human brain atlases.

For more information about this project and the Brain Atlas Concordance Problem, please see Bohland et al. (2009). The brain atlas concordance problem: quantitative comparison of anatomical parcellations. PLoS ONE. 4(9): e7200.

Select either:

  • Two atlases, then click Compare two atlases to view a graphical comparison of the overlapping regions
  • One atlas (from the first list), then click Explore atlas to see a list of its regions and enable comparison with all other atlas regions
