"Atamai is a company which makes "virtual augmentation for neurosurgery" software, allowing the information coming from probes in brain tissue to display against a 3D representation of brain structures.
Two aspects of the story stood out: the first, that the team which came together to form Atamai conceived of the project as a "GPS for the brain," a way to construct a standardized way of mapping brain locations for surgery; the second, that much of the code is open source.
An open source virtual augmentation system for locational positioning during brain surgery? I'm dizzy from the futurism." - Open Source Brain Visualization Tools
