It seems that since this article is within the scope of WikiProject Medicine, the article has already been deemed notable. However, I have gone ahead and updated the BrainMaps page to include additional references, including Science and Discover magazine. Medlat 17:11, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Seems Article is Plagiarized
Hi. It seems this article is plagiarized directly from http://brainmaps.org - the source of the topic... whoever entered the data took it almost verbatim from the University of California site that built it... Stevenmitchell 23:15, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
- I agree, this is a copyvio if the original author did not have permission to put the text under the GFDL. It should however be noted that this author is not unlikely to be Shawn Mikula himself, since he was *very* active in a WP:AUTO kind of way some time ago, not to everybody's happiness.

- Wow, first the John Seigenthaler Sr. Wikipedia biography controversy, and now this. Good to see Wikipedia admins take character assassination and defamation real seriously around here. I take it High on a tree is a good acquaintance of Shawn Mikula, in a position to know what he's talking about? Whilegray
Brain mapping coverage
Brain mapping is a research area that has received massively escalating funding. (see $100 million dollar project funded by Paul Allen (Microsoft) Allen Brain Atlas, 2009 NIH $30 million project Human Connectome Project (and related article Connectome), 1 billion euro, 10 year project, Human Brain Project (EU), and 2013 NIH $3 billion 10 year project Brain Activity Map Project
I envision the specific "project" articles will cover project management aspects (politics, funding, lead personalities, schedules, major milestones, broadly covered general news events, etc.) while the actual scientific details will be covered in singular (vs. plural) noun-topic-titled articles (encyclopedia style). Actually, after searching I was surprised how deep the coverage actually was already on Wikipedia. To create links to those I originated List of topics related to brain mapping. More details are included on the talk page. Please feel free to comment or edit.
I'm also pondering what "frequently asked questions" might be out there on the general topic of brain mapping? I started a very preliminary "guess" list. It really applies across all four major projects. see: User:Rjlabs/Brain mapping frequently asked questions. It's totally informal, just at the brainstorming stage. It's not intended to be an outline for any article, however if there are answers (now or in the future) contained in various Wikipedia scientific topic articles, pointers might be added in the List of topics related to brain mapping page out to them. Again, feel free to add, edit or comment.
