Because clinicians and researchers rely on neurodevelopment data obtained from a variety of non-human species, it is essential to be able to relate studies across the different experimental animals, and ultimately to humans, in an easily accessible format. This web site is based on a database originally assembled by Finlay and Darlington, 1995 that finds equivalent post conception (PC) dates across mammalian species. The model has subsequently been refined in Clancy et al. 2001 and most recently in Workman et al., 2013. The model now integrates over 1,000 empirically-derived neural events to translate neurodevelopment time across 18 mammalian species (placental and marsupial mammals) including hamsters, mice, rats, rabbits, spiny mice, guinea pigs, ferrets, opossums, cats, rhesus monkeys and humans. It also integrates most recently acquired data such as great apes.
