This dynamic tool empowers scientists to investigate how circuits in the behaving mouse brain coordinate to drive activity and perception, and lays a crucial foundation for understanding perception, cognition and ultimately consciousness. “The Allen Institute is known for our atlases–deep, high quality data sets revealing where genes are expressed and how cells and connections are arranged in the mouse and human brain,” says Allan Jones, Ph.D., CEO of the Allen Institute. “With the Allen Brain Observatory, we’ve taken an important leap into measuring natural brain activity as it is actually happening.” The first data…
