Welcome to the SPARC Portal — Advancing bioelectronic medicine through open science!

Our vision: Integration of Data, Knowledge, Computational Modeling, and Spatial Mapping for the peripheral nervous system will greatly advance scientific understanding and will deliver significant impacts for clinical medicine.

What Can I Do with SPARC?
Browse, View, and Get Data and Models
Freely use curated experimental data, protocols, and models of the autonomic nervous system.
View 2D and 3D Anatomical Maps
Discover relationships and datasets with interactive connectivity maps featuring different species.
Create Computational Pipelines
Connect to the o²S²PARC platform to build and explore modeling and data analysis pipelines.
Include SPARC in your proposals
2023 NIH Data Sharing Policy is in effect now. Requirements are met when your grant includes SPARC.

Here's a dataset you might be interested in
Identification of peripheral neural circuits that regulate heart rate using optogenetic and viral vector strategies
Data from the innervation of intact mice hearts and the mapping of parasympathetic and sympathetic neural circuits which control heart rate. This data set identifies the cholinergic and noradrenergic neurons which project to the sinoatrial node.
