September 2020:


     1) A new lab(Cirong Lab@ION)was incubated from Marmoset Brain Mapping Project, at Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (Institute of Neuroscience), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, China. Two postdoc positions are availble for our new lab, please contact us for details.

   2) Our version 3 atlas (Population multi-modal standard volumetric and surface-based templates) are currently being under-reviewed in a Special Issue of Neuroimage. The V3 will significantly facilitate neuroimaging data analysis. However, the paper won't come out early next year. If you are interested in the V3, you may contact us to get a copy for the pre-release version.


January 2020:


Our version 2 atlas (white matter pathways) and its associated high-resolution MRI data were published on Nature Neuroscience as the cover paper of the February issue (Vol 23, No.2), and was hightlighted In Brief by Nature Methods.

Thanks for the reviewers and their constructive comments, which made the current resources and website possible!

About the Project

Marmoset Brain Mapping Project

Since 2016



The Marmoset Brain Mapping Project was launched in Nov. 2016, aiming at building comprehensive marmoset brain atlases and tools to facilitate neuroimaging and translational studies.

With supports and helps from multiple labs and teams, including
- Cirong Liu's lab (ION/CAS)
- Afonso Silva's lab (NINDS/NIH): Afonso Silva, John Newman, Cecil Yen, Diego Szczupak, and Xiaoguang Tian;
- David Leopold's lab (NIMH/NIH): David Leopold, and Frank Ye;
- @MarmosetBrainConnectityAtlas: Marcello Rosa, and Piotr Majka;
- AFNI (NIMH/NIH): Daniel Glen;
- Zhifeng Liang's lab (ION/CAS)

We are making significant progress during these years, not only in developing atlases for mapping the marmoset brain, but also in pushing the resolution limit of non-human primate MRI. These efforts resulted in useful atlases and tools for the marmoset research and valuable MRI data that can be of interests to researchers who are in the MRI research field.

Via this website, we would like to share all of our fruits, including raw data, to the research community. Our "effort-tree" is still growing, and we hope the current and future fruits will promote open-science and contribute to neuroscience research of marmosets.
