The Allen Brain Atlas provides a unique online public resource integrating extensive gene expression data, connectivity data and neuroanatomical information with powerful search and viewing tools for the adult and developing brain in mouse, human and non-human primate
The version 1.0 of the open database contains 1,151,268 brain signals of 2 seconds each, captured with the stimulus of seeing a digit (from 0 to 9) and thinking about it, over the course of almost 2 years between 2014 & 2015, from a single Test Subject David Vivancos. All the signals have been captured using commercial EEGs (not medical grade), NeuroSky MindWave, Emotiv EPOC, Interaxon Muse & Emotiv Insight, covering a total of 19 Brain (10/20) locations. In 2014 started capturing brain signals and released the first versions of the "MNIST" of brain digits, and in 2018 released another open dataset with a subset of the "IMAGENET" of The Brain. Version 0.05 (last update 09/28/2021) of the open database contains 24,000 brain signals of 2 seconds each, captured with the stimulus of seeing a real MNIST digit (from 0 to 9) 6,000 so far and thinking about it, + the same amout of signals with another 2 seconds of seeing a black screen, shown in between the digits, from a single Test Subject David Vivancos in a controlled still experiment to reduce noise from EMG & avoiding blinks.

National Human Brain Bank for Development and Function was originally established in 2012 by the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences as a public interest institution dedicated to the preservation and research of human brain tissues based on the volunteer donor station of Peking Union Medical College. In 2019, it was officially recognised by the Ministry of Science and Technology as a national science and technology resource platform: National Human Brain Bank for Development and Function. Since its establishment, the Concordia Brain Bank has accepted and preserved more than two hundred and seventy whole brain tissue samples. While conducting its own research on the standardisation of brain banks, neuropathology and various histologies related to human brain ageing and dementia, it has also developed and published the Standardised Operational Protocol for Human Brain Tissue Banks in China for more than ten universities in China, and has provided valuable human brain tissue samples for a number of research groups in our own institutions and other units in China, which has strongly supported brain science and brain disease research in China. As a national resource platform, we will continue to aim to support and lead brain science research in China and make positive contributions to maintaining brain health and defeating brain diseases.

The National Human Brain Tissue Bank for Health and Disease (the Brain Bank) was built to meet the needs of scientific research by integrating experts and forces from neuroscience, human anatomy, pathology and other related disciplines. The Brain Bank collects and stores post-mortem brain tissue donated by patients with various neuropsychiatric disorders and normal controls, as well as their life histories, in accordance with international standards, and provides a detailed and accurate neuropathological diagnosis of these brain tissue samples (also known as the "final diagnosis"). The aim is to discover and elucidate the causes of human neuropsychiatric diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, depression, schizophrenia and other human diseases, and to provide scientists with the most direct and effective means of finding the relevant pathogenesis and establishing effective treatments. The National Brain Tissue Resource for Health and Disease The goal of the National Human Brain Tissue Repository for Health and Disease is to integrate collection, diagnosis, storage and utilisation, and to build a first-class human resource preservation infrastructure in China that is in line with international standards and provides support for neuroscience research. In 2020, the National Brain Bank has established three branches of the National Brain Bank in Hefei, Anhui, Nanjing, Jiangsu, and Shanghai. major cities.
The Brain Transcriptome Database (BrainTx) project aims to create an integrated platform to visualize and analyze our original transcriptome data and publicly accessible transcriptome data related to the genetics that underlie the development, function, and dysfunction stages and states of the brain.
FlyCircuit is a public database for online archiving, cell type inventory, browsing, searching, analysis and 3D visualization of individual neurons in the Drosophila brain. The FlyCircuit Database currently contains about 30,000 high resolution 3D brain neural images of the drosophila fruit fly brain that are combined into a neural circuitry network that researchers can use as a blueprint to further explore how the brain of a fruit fly processes external sensory signals (i.e. how vision, hearing, and smell are transmitted to the central nerve system).
Brain Analysis Library of Spatial maps and Atlases (BALSA) is a database for hosting and sharing neuroimaging and neuroanatomical datasets for human and primate species. BALSA houses curated, user-created Study datasets, extensively analyzed neuroimaging data associated with published figures and Reference datasets mapped to brain atlas surfaces and volumes in human and nonhuman primates as a general resource (e.g., published cortical parcellations).
This is an information resource for central nervous system imaging which integrates clinical information with magnetic resonance (MR), x-ray computed tomography (CT), and nuclear medicine images.
The BigBrain Project repository contains data from BigBrain: A high-resolution, 3D model of a human post-mortem brain, which was obtained in accordance with ethical requirements of the University of Düsseldorf. The brain of a 65-year-old body donor was sectioned, stained for cell bodies, scanned at very high resolution, and then digitally reconstructed in 3D. The full dataset of images, volumes, and surfaces are available for download on the project's ftp site, while a subset of files offering different spatial resolutions can be accessed via LORIS. The web-based 3D interactive atlas viewer is capable of displaying very large brain volumes, including oblique slicing, a whole brain overview, surface meshes, and maps. It enables navigating the BigBrain in 3D, exploring the growing set of highly detailed maps for cortical layers and cytoarchitectonic areas, and finding related neuroscience data.

The Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research (FITBIR) informatics system was developed to share data across the entire TBI research field and to facilitate collaboration between laboratories, as well as interconnectivity with other informatics platforms. Sharing data, methodologies, and associated tools, rather than summaries or interpretations of this information, can accelerate research progress by allowing re-analysis of data, as well as re-aggregation, integration, and rigorous comparison with other data, tools, and methods. This community-wide sharing requires common data definitions and standards, as well as comprehensive and coherent informatics approaches.
