A brain imaging database of rare and endangered Australian mammals.
This project will implement the concept of a comprehensive national brain and skull image database of extant and extinct Australian native mammals and birds. Eventually this national e-Research collection is expected to include high quality data of brains from most of Australia’s unique fauna and will allow data-mining for qualitative and quantitative comparisons across multiple species and exemplars.
