ALLEN BRAIN ATLAS API

The Allen Cell Types Database provides multimodal single cell characterization data to enable data-driven approaches to cell types classification.

From the API, you can:

Download electrophysiology data in Neurodata Without Border (NWB) format
Download computed electrophysiology features
Download images of cell morphology
Download morphological reconstructions in SWC format
Download computed morphology features
Download neuronal models trained on this dataset

This document provides a brief overview of the data, database organization and example queries. API database object names are in camel case. See the main API Documentation for more information on data models and query syntax.

The accompanying Allen Software Development Kit (SDK) provides python code for accessing electrophysiology data (NWB files) for all cells and morphological reconstructions (SWC files) for a subset of cells. The Allen SDK also provides sample code demonstrating how to do download neuronal model parameters and run your own simulations using stimuli for the experiments of custom current injections.
