The connectome, the complex map of our brain connections, is central to our individuality, our intelligence and personal preferences and our individual vulnerability to brain diseases and dementia. Clinically, impairments of brain network integrity is an early indicator of neurodegenerative diseases and a more accurate predictor of cognitive decline than volumetric assessments alone.
Extracting structural and functional brain connectivity from raw images, however, is time consuming and requires extensive expert knowledge.
With NICARA you have thousands of publicly-available connectomes immediately available; plus the possibility to analyze your own data by interactively and dynamically creating individual connectomes via an intuitive web portal.
NICARA. Connectome Browser.
The Connectome Browser enables you to explore your own and public connectome data sets from structural (e.g., DWI) and functional (e.g., resting-state) MRI.
Visualize your brain imaging data in a highly-resolved 3D viewer or as a 3D lattice graph.
NICARA. Connectome Builder.
With only a few mouse clicks, the Connectome Builder enables you to automatically perform probabilistic white matter tractography from DWI and cortical morphometry measurements.
NICARA. Connectome Comparator.
The Connectome Comparator assists you in comparing full brain and subnetwork connectomes at the individual or group level.
You can compare your own data with matched controls chosen from public studies such as HCP.
NICARA. Connectome Editor.
The Connectome Editor of NICARA helps you explore, analyze and compare connectivity of selected anatomical and functional subnetworks.
Subnetworks can be defined on the basis of individual ROIs or by the use of anatomical or functional brain ontologies.
The NICARA Connectome Editor already provides a large selection of literature-based predefined subnetworks (major WM fiber tracts, (sub-)cortical areas, functional networks) based on selected brain atlases (e.g., HCP MMP 1.0 atlas).
