Information management is critical as the landscape of neuroscience related shared resources (data, software, computation, etc.) expands. Since 2006, the Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC: RRID:nif-0000-00202) has provided a comprehensive support infrastructure for resources in the neuroimaging domain. Funded by the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research as well as four NIH institutes , NITRC’s mission is to facilitate finding and comparing neuroimaging resources for neuroimaging analyses. Over the years the scope of these resources has expanded to support scientific domains from MR to PET, SPECT, CT, MEG/EEG, optical imaging, genetic imaging, clinical neuroinformatics and computational neuroscience. A broad set of initiatives have been developed to support these research areas.
