Brain Explorer 2 crashes frequently on Mac/Catalina

I’ve run BE2 (human brain atlas) for the first time on macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (latest version).

  1. It displays no data when one selects any of the available structure.
  2. Multiple selections cause an immediate crash. For example: bookmarks; View; Data; any section in the Atlas menu. This is probably a partial list
    In summary, the app is very unstable on the above machine/OS

Thank you

Hi Arie,

Please see this post for information about Brain Explorer 2 on a Mac.


Hi Tyler,

Thank you for your reply.

You mention “certain Mac configurations” as if I may be operating a Mac with an uncommon configuration. Contrary to this statement, I am operating the most current version of Catalina. If other Mac configurations work, they must be older operating systems.

To my opinion, you should focus your efforts on making sure Brain Explorer remains up to date in regard to compatibility with Mac OS. Many of the life science labs use Macs. I don’t believe that the problem I encountered is rare. I don’t have access to other machines.

The functionality of the browser-based Brain Explorer is very limited. It cannot replace the app.

Best regards,
