In a joint activity with INCF and Radboud University, we a supporting to sustain the data base developed by Rolf Kötter. CoCoMac (Collations of Connectivity data on the Macaque brain) is an approach to produce a systematic record of the known wiring of the primate brain.

The main database contains details of hundreds of tracing studies in their original descriptions. The database employs the ORT (Objective Relational Transformation), an algorithmic method to convert data in a coordinate- independent way based on logical relations between areas in different brain maps. Further data are continuously added.
