The NeuroLex project is a dynamic lexicon of terms used in neuroscience. It is supported by the Neuroscience Information Framework project and incorporates information from the NIF standardised ontology (NIFSTD), and its predecessor, the Biomedical Informatics Research Network Lexicon (BIRNLex).

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in NIF Standard Ontology: Neurolex should match this regular expression:

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from NIF Standard Ontology: Neurolex should match this regular expression:

Metaregistry NIF Standard Ontology: Neurolex

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for neurolex with 1 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext NEUROLEX logo miriam neurolex
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t neurolex
Prefix Commons prefixcommons neurolex

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE neurolex:4 is used to demonstrate the provides available for neurolex. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
