Will talk about: CoCoMac 2nd edition: open access made easy

Bio sketch:

I was raised as a chemical engineer, did my PhD on Chaotic System Identification (2007), then joined the late Rolf Kötter to expand the CoCoMac Macaque structural connectivity database, and developed the Scalable Brain Atlas online visualisation tool. Following the sad passing away of Rolf Kötter in 2010, I took on a project to make CoCoMac fully searchable and manageable over the web (Juelich Research Institute, G-Node). In parallel I apply the "CoCoMac engine" to electrophysiology lab automation (Radboud UMC Nijmegen) and to merge imaging databases accross hospitals (Dutch eScience center / Radboud University Nijmegen).
