Human Brain Microarray Survey
-----------------------------

Wiki Markup
The \[Allen Human Brain Atlas\](http://human.brain-map.org) is an online multimodal atlas of the human brain that
integrates anatomic and microarray-based gene expression information. Microarray sampling sites
(~400-1000 sites per brain) were identified by expert anatomists using cytoarchitectural information from multiple
histological stains. Sampling site delineations in the high resolution histological images were subsequently mapped
into each individual's MR image space to provide 3-D anatomical context. All brains are also registered to MNI space to
enable cross-individual comparisons.

\[Online\](http://human.brain-map.org) and \[desktop interactive tools\](http://human.brain-map.org/explorer.html) were
developed to navigate and visualize the data. All expression values and images are available through the Allen
Institute API.
