Choose among the following options for retrieving the data:


You can search for enhanced gene expression in various categories by selecting on a category from the tag cloud or by selecting multiple categories from the Gene Category drop down menu. The font size in the tag cloud is proportional to the number of genes associated with that category. The categories were created by online search engines such as PANTHER.


This panel includes demographic information of the donor including their race, gender, age, the tissue location, handedness and any relevant conditions. If your search was not gene specific, all genes that were assayed on this specimen block will be listed under "Related genes that match search criteria:". You can open the #Specimen Specimen Detail Information page by clicking the link labeled "Open specimen ISH and details page" or you can directly view the experimental detail by clicking on the gene abbreviation.

Clicking on the specimen link from the search results page or on the specimen link in the experiment details page will take you to detailed specimen information. Specimen detail information includes:

  1. Specimen Information
  2. #Spatial Spatial Context
  3. #Section Section Information
  4. #Gene Gene Information
  5. #Image Image Viewer
  6. Nearest Nissl Image
  7. Select experiments for the #Multiple Multiple Experiment Viewer

Donor/Specimen Metadata


You can navigate these images similar to the ZAP Image Viewer; with the on-screen navigation tools or the #Keyboard Keyboard Commands.

Nearest Nissl Image

When the "Sync" box is checked in the #Image Image Viewer, the closest reference section will be automatically loaded in this viewer. As you are browsing images in the #Image Image Viewer, the appropriate Nissl image will also be loaded in the reference viewer. The colored spots on the Nissl image are "hotspots" that when hovered over will bring up the structure name and it's acronym above the image. Clicking on the hotspot will open an Interactive Atlas Viewer with the structure of interest displayed in the context of the brain.


Multiple image series can be opened on the same Web page to enable side-by-side comparisons. If you are interested in seeing separate gene expression experiments in one window together, click the checkbox when you have a gene expression image displayed in the #Image Image Viewer.

You can select as many experiments to view as you'd like and they will be saved until you click the "Clear Selections" button. Once you have selected the experiments you'd like to view, click the "View Selections" button. Once in the Multiple Image Viewer, you can choose a different table layout by clicking on the settings wheel above the viewers and then selecting a different number of columns.
