Myeloarchitecture in the marmoset can accurately define many cortical regions, and would make a good basis for a digital atlas of the marmoset cortex. The imaging demands are stringent however, and a high resolution and contrast-to-noise are needed to resolve fine details in the myeloarchitecture. Here we present an average in vivo image based on four marmosets that better visualizes myeloarchitecture than images of individual monkeys. We plan to increase the number of monkeys comprising this average image and use it to create a digital atlas of myeloarchitecture in the marmoset.
