The 21st century is the century of the brain and mind, and to gather, present, use, and discover knowledge about the brain, the brain atlases are employed. A recent tremendous brain atlas development in terms of content, functionality and applications has additionally been propelled by brain big projects. Prof. Wiesław Nowiński has created diverse human brain atlases, including research prototypes and 35 products licensed to 67 companies and institutions, and distributed in about 100 countries. These are anatomic, vascular, connectomic, functional and population-based atlases in health and disease. Wiesław Nowiński will share his experience in brain atlas creation and the development of atlas-enabled applications for neuroeducation (including a family of The Human Brain in 1492/1969/2953 Pieces atlases and the NOWinBRAIN brain image repository), brain research, neurology (3D Atlas of Neurologic Disorders), stroke (atlas-assisted decision making, diagnosis support in emergency room, and probabilistic stroke atlas for prediction), psychiatry, neuroradiology, and neurosurgery for deep brain stimulation.
Prof. Wieslaw L. Nowinski, D.Sc., Ph.D. – scientist, innovator, entrepreneur, pioneer and visionary; science-medicine-art “bridge builder”; creator of “world’s most gorgeous” human brain atlases. Affiliated with the world’s top universities in the USA, China and Singapore, No 2 in MED and No 2, 6, 9 in ENG (Shanghai ranking).
