  1. For study type, we categorized each study into one of three types (histology, gross anatomy, or surgical training) based on our interpretation of the primary use of the tissue by each the investigators. Note that “histology” as the primary goal for a study is defined to include neuropathologic examination, forensic examination, or to study biomolecular and morphologic mechanisms of human brain function and disease.
