Digitalization and 3D Visualization

The primary goal of the Magdeburg Digital Brain Bank is to enable automated and high-precision investigations by digitalizing the slides from the Magdeburg Brain Bank. 3D reconstructions from coronal Nissl-Myelin stained brains serve as the „backbone“ for multimodal investigations, especially targeting immunological alterations in psychiatric diseases.

A series of mid brain sections, Nissl-Myelin staining, spacing 1mm, resolution of ~3µm/px (whole brain images, detail images may be resolved even higher)
