Due to their close relationship to the human brain, animal models of primates have been unique and irreplaceable in neurobiological studies. In these studies, atlases have played central roles as anatomical references. However, few atlases are 3D, digital, or have comprehensive gray and white matter labeling. In this abstract, we show the digital atlas with complete labeling of cortical gyri, subcortical nuclei and white matter tracts with high resolution DTI. The digital format of the atlas makes it possible to map the labeling information of the atlas to the experimental monkey brain with image registration.
