Common marmoset(Callithrix jacchus)is a New World monkey, which belongs to Simiiformes and shares common features of primates including humans. It may be possible to understand certain aspects of human brain by studying the marmoset brain. Toward this goal, we are working for building a marmoset brain map by tracer injection and subsequent TissueCyte analysis in collaboration with informatic groups. We will eventually open all the tracer map that we analyze, at first that of the prefrontal cortex. We hope our tracer map provide a firm basis for marmoset researches
