Allen Reference Atlas
This is the online help for the ALLEN Reference Atlas: Interactive Atlas Viewer.
The Interactive Atlas Viewer is an application from which you can view annotated versions of Nissl sections from several Allen Brain Atlas resources.
This Reference Atlas includes a sagittal and a coronal atlas annotated by Dr. Hong Wei Dong. The sagittal atlas contains 21 sections spaced at 200 microns and is annotated for 71 structures. The coronal atlas contains 132 sections spaced at 100 microns and is annotated for over 800 structures (including cortical layers).
This Reference Atlas includes seven developmental stages in the sagittal plane drawn by Dr. Luis Puelles.
Allen Institute anatomists have created a neuroanatomic reference guide to provide a spatial context for both the microarray and ISH samples available in the Human Brain Atlas.
Allen Institute anatomists have created Reference Atlases at two prenatal and an adult developmental stage to provide a spatial context for both the RNASeq and ISH samples available in the BrainSpan Atlas of the Developing Human Brain.
