The NeuronBank Wiki is place for Neuroscientists to describe neurons and neural circuitry. It works like Wikipedia, in that all pages are available to be edited by registered users of NeuronBank. The ultimate goal is advance the field of Neuromics by creating an encyclopedia of neurons and neural circuitry.

Getting Started

You can search for neurons and information about neurons in the search box. If the name that you searched for doesn't show up, you have the option of creating a page for that neuron.

After you log in with your NeuronBank username, you are free to edit any page or to add new pages. To get a NeuronBank username, simply go to NewAccount on NeuronBank.

Information about Editing wiki pages is available under Help.

You can copy and paste from the Template page to create a new page for a neuron. Specific Templates can be designed for different species. See for example Leech_Neuron_Template

NeuronBank Knowledgebase

The NeuronBank Wiki works in parallel with NeuronBank itself. Every item in the NeuronBank knowledgebase has an Accession ID, which automatically generates a wiki page.

The NeuronBank knowledge base is no longer functional.
