Python scripts to create 3D renderings of mouse brain anatomical and projection data and neurons reconstructions.
Anatomical and projection data is downloaded from the Allen Brain Atlas reference atlas and connectivity atlas using the Allen API (© 2015 Allen Institute for Brain Science. Allen Brain Atlas API. Available from: brain-map.org/api/index.html) (, ). Streamlines reconstructions are made by https://neuroinformatics.nl using the mouse connectome data from Allen (see here for more details)
BrainRender also comes with meshes for the reconstruction of the brain of Drosophila Melanogaster. Data is from the Virtual Fly Brain Project's adult brain template based on work from Jennet et al 2012.
