ready NeuroNames


General Information
The NeuroNames ontology is designed to accommodate all of the English and Latin names (words and multiword terms) used by neuroscientists to reference all neuroanatomic concepts (word definitions and images) in the neuroscience literature of the last 50 years. Every name is classified as either a standard name or a synonym for the concept it represents. Some synonyms (multiple names for the same structure) are also homonyms (same name for different structures). Later the names for approximately 1000 structures encountered in neuroanatomic textbooks of six other languages were incorporated: French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Russian, and Spanish. Since 1992, the entire NeuroNames name set has been a regularly updated Source Vocabulary for the National Library of Medicine’s Unified Medical Language System. PubMed uses the synonym lists of NeuroNames to retrieve abstracts of articles in which authors have used different names for a structure than the search term submitted by the user.
