    v2 v3  
    11A basic requirement for facilitating the integration and analysis of basic and clinical neuroscientific data from diverse sources is a well-structured ontology that can incorporate and organize all kinds of neuroanatomical data into a knowledge base that can lend support and extend to the demands of existing and evolving multi-scale neuroscience and clinical applications. Here we show how the Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA) Ontology ([http://sig.biostr.washington.edu/projects/fm/AboutFM.html]) as a reference ontology can provide a structure-based foundation for a neuroanatomy ontology and therefore endowing it with a semantic framework capable of explicitly defining any neuroanatomical types and thus facilitating correlation of different and disparate neuroanatomical views, a requirement necessary for aligning existing and emerging ontologies and theories used in neuroinformatics.
