11 September 2021 Completion of partonomic lists

The selection "Partonomy of TNA" has been entirely revisited and completed. Two different aspects have been fulfilled: 1) the navigation initial page are now available in 4 languages; 2) the partonomic lists and sublists have been exhaustively generated. Now, the navigation between lists and sublists is fully available allowing any move between the 8 language options. The partonomic lists are the dynamic view of the Published lists.

04 September 2021 Updates of Published list section

Full validation of the Published lists has been performed and covers most sections of TNA. The Published lists are expected to be soon moved to the public website. They have to be freely accessed all over the world, before the IFAA 2022 congress in Istambul. The Published lists are stand alone PDF files that can be copied and freely exchanged between users.

06 April 2021 Update of descending tracts of caudal rhombencephalon

A complete update of the descending tracts of caudal rhombencephalon has been prepared. All Unit pages and all Entity pages have been generated. The eight language combinations have been generated. The navigation between lists and sublists of the partonomy is entirely present. This is to be considered as a demonstration of the future TNA website.

03 April 2021 Updates of partonomic lists for meninges and tracts

Preparation of all lists and sublists of the partonomy of meninges and tracts. This development includes all multilanguage variants. In addition, the Unit Pages and Entity Pages for the caudal rhombencephalon have been uploaded (but validation is uncertain).

28 March 2021 Creation of the new Published lists section

Creation of the new Published lists section for test purpose, before it can be moved to the public website.

28 March 2021 Internal refurbishment of the development website

Reorganisation of the directories receiving the web pages. Removal of nearly all old pages, generated before this month.

12 October 2020 New help files for Unit and Entity Pages

Each page of a specific type on the web site is normally documented by a dedicated help file, under the form of a dynamic PDF document. The Unit Page and the Entity Page have got now a revised help file.

26 September 2020 Detailed view on cochlea

All Entity and Unit Pages for the section cochlea have been uploaded in order to demonstrate the navigation within these pages. All 5 languages are present allowing comparison between languages.

Taxonomic definitions have been entered for all entities, but they have not yet been validated. Translation is performed thanks to Google translate. Navigation to the partonomic or taxonomic lists is very partially realised at this moment, sorry! The interface texts in Spanish and Russian have not yet been validated.

Go to the Latin partonomy, select sense organs, then vestibulocochlear organ, then cochlea. Or go to Direct Access and select Entity 7271. From there you can navigate to all the above mentioned pages.

4 September 2020 Taxonomy of material entities

Four sections of this part of the taxonomy have been open. They are the organs, the organ parts, the clusters and the cells. The taxonomy is based on the Fundational Model of Anatomy, translated in Latin.

Currently, these taxonomic views are limited to the Latin taxonomy. They are partial and mainly limited to the TNA part of the terminology. Most of the hyperlinks are not yet satisfied. Nevertheless, the links to the FMA are active.

10 August 2020 Taxonomy of immaterial entities

This part of the taxonomy has been activated, based on the Fundational Model of Anatomy and translated in Latin.

Currently, these taxonomic views are limited to the Latin taxonomy. They are partial and mainly limited to the TNA part of the terminology. Most of the hyperlinks are not yet satisfied. Nevertheless, the links to the FMA are active.

31 July 2020 Opening of taxonomy of non physical entities

Non physical entities are present in the taxonomy of anatomy. They are necessary in particular at the level of representation and at the level of the language.

The section on anatomical relations describes the different relations in use in the partonomy and the taxonomy, principally isa and partof. These hierarchies are strictly developed with these relations that must be clearly defined.

The section on nomen rei anatomicae presents the vocabulary of the terminology, as used in the construction of the universal formulas. Words are grouped in subsections of the domain.

Currently, these taxonomic views are limited to the Latin taxonomy. They are partial and mainly limited to the TNA part of the terminology. Most of the hyperlinks are not yet satisfied. Nevertheless, the links to the FMA are active.

10 June 2020 Extensive revision of the vessels

The two sections about cerebral vessels have been extensively revised, with insistance about the similarities between languages. These similarities are definitively the rules in more than 90 percent of the cases and each specific language keeps its freedom for traditional and language specific terms.

The 5-language lists brings a de facto demonstration that the terminology is universal and internationally shared, as a consequence that anatomy is universal by definition.

22 May 2020 Insertion of top taxonomic lists

The taxonomy of the domain of anatomy has been set up by the Foundational Model of Anatomy. This model is originally available in English only, therefore we are using our translation tools to make it available in 5 languages.

Under the selection Taxonomy of TA, the top levels of the taxonomy have been partially compiled and are currently visible in English only. Extension to other languages would follow. See for example the scetion on organs.

15 May 2020 Insertion of partonomic lists of telencephalon

Under the selection partonomy of TNA, the telencephalon section has been partly uploaded. The most documented part is about the limbic lobe, where one can see the Unit and Entity pages in Latin.

8 May 2020 Insertion of partonomic lists of vessels

Under the selection partonomy of TNA, the part concerning the cerebral vessels has been largely developed, as main lists at level P2 and their sublists at levels P3 and P4.

All lists are available in the 5 languages of the website. The language is initially selected and preserved during navigation unless it is changed by the user.

Each list comes with pointers to units, entities and FMA entities. Clicking any of these pointers will send the user to the corresponding Unit page, Entity page or to the FMA entity on an FMA website. Navigation between the local Unit and Entity pages is also possible.

Approximative number of uploaded pages: 8000

1 May 2020 Re-opening of the website

The development website was initially created in 2010. It is now the reference website for development of the neuroanatomical terminology (TNA). The website is open to a selected number of experts in anatomy, active in the validation of the revised TNA, as accepted in July 2019 at the London congress of IFAA.

The initial version of the website is limited to the Published lists of the partonomy of TNA. The TNA is organized into 22 sections and each section is presented into 5 lists: one for each language English, French, Spanish and Russian always accompanied by Latin, and one with the 5 languages alltogether.

The published lists are periodically updated and represent the current status of the terminology. At regular intervals of time, when substantial updates have been reported regarding a section, a new version of the each list is compiled. However, the latest updates to the terminology may be not immediately visible here.
