RESTful API for the Rat Brain Atlas located at The function ratBrainAtlas(ap,ml,dv) reads the web request, downloads the atlas images, and outputs a struct in S. If the Image Processing Toolbox is installed S will include marked images (red dot):
>> ml = 1.3;
>> ap = -3.3;
>> dv = 7.5;
>> S = ratBrainAtlas(ml,ap,dv)

S =
struct with fields:
coronal: [1×1 struct]
sagittal: [1×1 struct]
horizontal: [1×1 struct]

>> S.coronal

ans =

struct with fields:
image_url: ''
left: 5.385000000000000e+02
top: 4.715000000000000e+02
image: [726×940 uint8]
image_marked: [726×940×3 uint8]
