The sheep model was first used in
the field of reproductive physiology in agronomy to improve milk and meat
production, and then was brought into fundamental and preclinical neurosciences.
Since a decade, MR studies performed on this model are increasingly reported.
To play an important role in MR translational neuroscientific research, a brain
template and an atlas are therefore necessary. Simultaneously, two MR templates
were proposed in 2015. To complete the set of MR tools, we computed a high resolution 3D in-vivo sheep brain atlas
including: i) gyri and sulci ii)
inner structures iii)
main external structures.
