Welcome to BrainSTEM

A collaborative electronic lab notebook for FAIR experimental neuroscience.


brainSTEM logo
BrainSTEM has a customizable web interface built on a flexible data model and functions as an electronic lab notebook that allows for the organization of experiments and raw data. Granular access control enables collaboration within or across labs. The database of metadata can be accessed through either a web interface or REST API. A prototype of this tool has been deployed in the Buzsáki Lab, and a beta version for broad distribution is currently under development.
