NeuroNames is a system of nomenclature for the human and/or macaque brain.
It is maintained by the University of Washington and is a part of a tool called "BrainInfo". BrainInfo helps one identify structures in the brain. One can either search by a structure name or locate a structure in the brain atlas and get information such as its location in the classical brain hierarchy, other names used for the structure, the name in several languages, images of the structure, what cells it has, connectivity information and genes expressed there.
Currently, NeuroNames contains more than 15,000 neuroanatomical terms(and the number keeps increasing). In addition, it defines more than 1,500 other neuroanatomical entities.
It is a component of the Metathesaurus of the Unified Medical Language System.
