NeuroNames, developed and maintained by The National Primate Research Center at the University of Washington, is a comprehensive neuroanatomical nomenclature for structures of the primate brain. It includes a standard vocabulary of structure names designed to maximize practicality in verbal communication as well as computerized knowledge management, and contains synonyms of the standard terms in several languages.
Data is supplied in a single JSON file.
