DEVELOPING MOUSE REFERENCE ATLAS
|Table of Contents|
To provide a neuroanatomical framework for gene expression data, the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Reference Atlas was created with the expertise of Professor Luis Puelles, M.D., Ph.D. (University of Murcia, Spain). Sagittal full-color, high resolution web-based digital reference atlases have been created for seven stages of mouse brain development accompanied by a systematic developmental taxonomy of mouse brain structures.
Navigation of the images requires using the on-screen navigation tools or the #Keyboard Commands. Hovering the mouse over the image will outline the current structure as well as load that structure name in the top left-hand corner of the main viewer. Clicking on a structure will color that structure purple and highlight it in the #Structure Ontology.

Interacting with the High Resolution Image Viewer is similar to using the ZAP Viewer with some enhanced features accessible from icons in the top right hand of the main image viewer.
View ISH, Expression Energy, or Reference Stain (Nissl or Feulgen-HP Yellow)

Allows you to access setting options, including downloading the current image
Zoom and Pan (ZAP) Image Viewer
Use the toolbar to take actions on the image that currently has focus. Toolbar controls include:
Move the slider bar to the left to intensify the contrast or color
Select ISH, Nissl or Expression image type
Display all thumbnail images in a single 'contact sheet'
Open the selected image in the image viewer tool
Synchronize all other Zap viewers on the page that support synchronization to the currently selected image
Open a new browser window to review metadata for the image series
Close the Zap viewer
Use the keyboard to navigate through the image series. Keyboard commands include:
Advance to the next image in the series
Go back to the previous image in the series
Advance to the last image in the series
Go back to the first image in the series
Zoom in. Please note that some keyboards may require the [Shift] key be held down while pressing the [+] key
