Allen Mouse Connectivity Atlas

This is the online help for the ALLEN Mouse Connectivity web application.

The Allen Mouse Brain Connectivity Atlas is a high-resolution map of neural connections in the mouse brain. Built on an array of transgenic mice genetically engineered to target specific cell types, the Atlas comprises a unique compendium of projections from selected neuronal populations throughout the brain.

Key features:

Projection Mapping image data detailing axonal projections labeled by viral tracers
  • Specific anatomic regions throughout the brain
  • Numerous defined neuronal populations
  • Stacks of two-dimensional images obtained by serial two-photon tomography
BDA vs. AAV for direct comparison of data derived from both conventional and viral tracing method
Transgenic Characterization data detailing transgene expression in Cre or other driver lines
  • Adult and developing brain
  • Colorimetric in situ hybridization
  • Fluorescent in situ hybridization
  • Other histological methods
  • No labels
