Brain Explorer

Brain Explorer is a desktop software application for viewing Allen Brain Atlas (ABA) gene expression data in the framework of the Allen Reference Atlas (ARA) in 3D. Using Brain Explorer, you can:

  • View a fully interactive version of the ARA in 3D
  • View gene expression data in 3D at 100 μm3 resolution
  • View expression data from multiple genes superimposed on each other in 3D
  • Navigate the high-resolution 2D ISH images from the ABA using the 3D model
  • Link to associated gene metadata on the ABA website

The 3D data shown in Brain Explorer is generated from the same process employed in the search algorithms on the ABA web site; see the Informatics white paper for more information. Download a sample data set, or use one of the following options to download gene expression data directly from the ABA site
