Abstract Brede database developed by Finn Årup Nielsen at DTU provides neuroscientific related literature search using coordinate-based queries. Users are able to view the article's abstracts as well as details of experiments described. Unfortunately it suffers from performance issues and limited amount of articles in the database. The goal of this thesis is to present work that has been done to improve the performance and extend feature set of Brede database. This required a paradigm change from XML text based approach to full relational database back-end. The almost thirty-fold reduction of response time make room form additional processing - new features can be added in future and still have delay acceptable by users. Few features that can be incorporated into the design are also investigated.
