The BigBrain Model

This is remarkable, not just because it has been done, but also because they have made it free to researchers world-wide.

“The BigBrain atlas offers nearly cellular resolution, that is detail close to the level of the cell, a capability that has not been previously available in 3D for the human brain,” says Dr. Alan Evans, researcher at The Neuro, co-founder of the International Consortium for Brain Mapping and co-creator of the atlas. “To put BigBrain in context, we can consider present day MRIs which have a 3D spatial resolution of 1mm. In comparison, the BigBrain data set is 50 times smaller in each dimension providing unmatched spatial resolution. The BigBrain data set is 125,000 times (50 x50 x 50) bigger than a typical MRI, and has a volume of 1 terabyte, which is equal to 1000 GB.”

This is cool. Why, you ask? Well, because it’s proof that opening up data, or the application programming interface (API) that allows one to interact with data on a particular system, can lead to really cool things — hacks, if you will — that the service provider never considered. There are thousands of ways that data can be harvested and put to a use different than how it was originally intended. You just have to let the hackers hack.
