Brain Region Data

  • Names and abbreviations of the brain regions.

  • The nomenclature system of the neuropils is based on Ito et al. (in preparation).

    central nervous system
       |_  brain
       |      |_  supraoesophageal ganglion
       |      |      |_  optic lobe
       |      |      |_  cerebrum
       |      |_  suboesophageal ganglion
       |_  thoraco-abdominal ganglia

  • Brain regions by Strausfeld and Otsuna.

  • The nomenclature system, which has been frequently used in research papers, based on information on the website Flybrain, and in Otsuna and Ito (2006, J. Comp. Neurol. 497:928-958). Contents of the Flybrain website are based on definitions in "Atlas of an Insect Brain" (Strausfeld, N. J., 1976, Springer-Verlag (Berlin, New York)). Click here for the entire list.
