In the current release of the Allen Cell Types Database, we include electrophysiological recordings from 1058 mouse cells and 279 human cells, a subset of which also include morphological reconstruction reconstructions and Neuronal Models. The Cell Feature Search page allows you to find cells obtained from specimens that satisfy certain conditions. For example, you can choose to select only cells from a certain species and certain cortical layers. You can also use this page to find cells for which specific types of data are available. For example, you can choose to select only cells for which there is not only electrophysiological data, but also morphological reconstructions and neuronal models.

The cell summary cards provide a link to a page displaying the available electrophysiological data (including possible neuronal models) and, if available, a link to a page displaying the available morphological data.

 

In the current release of the Allen Cell Types Database, we include electrophysiological recordings from 1058 mouse cells and 279 human cells, a subset of which also include morphological reconstructions and Neuronal Models. The Cell Feature Search page allows you to find cells that satisfy certain conditions and to view summary cards for those cells in a desired sorting order. From a cell's summary card, you can navigate to pages that contain detailed electrophysiological or morphological information for that cell.

 

The Cell Feature Search page is divided into three areas: 1) In the top area, you can set filters for cell properties that have discrete values.  such as species and cortical layers. You can also set filters to select cells for which specific types of data are available. 2) In the middle area, you can set filters for numerical results in certain value ranges by using a Parallel Coordinate Plot. 3) In the bottom area, you see brief summary cards for the cells that were selected with the filters set in the two areas above, and you can choose the sorting order in which those cards are displayed.

Filter parameters

To filter the neurons in your list of results, select from the mouse line, the cortical layer (1, 2/3, 4, 5, 6), and the Cell Reporter (Positive or Negative). By
