NIJC Neuroinformatics Japan Center


Standing at the intersection of neuroscience and information science, the field of neuroinformatics develops the tools to house, share and analyze neuroscientific data, and to create computational models of brain. As a node of the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), the Neuroinformamtics Japan Center (NIJC) was established to organize neuroinformatics research activities in Japan.

NIJC supports researchers developing and maintaining neuroscience databases, provides a portal for these databases and Neuroinformatics, and is designing the infrastructure for Neuroinformatics. It is also developing database technologies, and facilitates cooperation and distribution of the information stored in those databases.
