EduCortex is an educational browser-based visualization tool that allows the user to enter any functional or anatomical term (e.g., “visual”, “face”, “precuneus”) and visualize the parts of the brain that are most associated with that term. The process can also be reversed, where the user can click anywhere on the brain to see what terms are most associated with the selected brain region. Using principal components analysis, we also display the functional terms that explained the most variance across all activation maps. This tool works through the combination of Neurosynth, a large-scale, automated database of fMRI papers, and PyCortex, an interactive 3D brain visualizer. This tool was mostly made over the course of 1 week during NeuroHackademy 2019.
