brainglobe-segmentation is a companion to brainreg allowing manual segmentation of regions/objects within the brain (e.g. injection sites, probes etc.) allowing for automated analysis of brain region distribution, and visualisation (e.g. in brainrender).
brainglobe-segmentation comes bundled with brainreg’s optional
napari dependency, so see the brainreg installation instructions.
brainglobe-segmentation can be installed on its own (see below), but you will need to register your data with brainreg first.
If you don’t want to install brainreg, brainglobe-segmentation can be installed on its own. brainglobe-segmentation is
distributed as a plugin for napari, so first follow the
napari installation instructions. You can then install
brainglobe-segmentation from the
napari plugin menu.
Alternatively, the plugin can be installed into a Python environment with
pip install brainglobe-segmentation.
If you find brainglobe-segmentation (formerly brainreg-segment) useful and use it in your research, please let us know and also cite the paper:

Lastly, if you can, please cite the BrainGlobe Atlas API that provided the atlas:

Don’t forget to cite the developers of the atlas that you used (e.g. the Allen Brain Atlas)!
