Society for Neuroscience 2019

Meet scientists from the Allen Institute for Brain Science at this year's Society for Neuroscience conference. Visit us at booth #401, attend our talks and events, register for our Satellite Workshops, and stop by one of our posters.

10/19/2019 to 10/23/2019

Attend our Satellite Workshops

Exploring brain cell type diversity with the Allen Brain Explorer and Cell Types Database

The Allen Brain Atlas includes a suite of tools and datasets that provide comprehensive access to human and mouse cell types, including standardized transcriptomic, electrophysiological, and morphological data. Allen Institute scientists will review the scientific background that motivated creation of these datasets, experimental methodologies, and lead an interactive demonstration on how to access new tools and more data.

Please plan to bring a computer with you to the event.

Please note that this workshop and "Exploring the mouse visual system: the Allen Brain Observatory" will run concurrently.

Exploring the mouse visual system: the Allen Brain Observatory

The Allen Brain Observatory is an open resource featuring physiological activity in the visual cortex of the awake behaving mouse. Allen Institute scientists will review the scientific background that motivated creation of these datasets, experimental methodologies, and will lead an interactive demonstration on how to access, visualize, and analyze the data. Some experience with Python is recommended.

Please plan to bring a computer with you to the event.

Please note that this workshop and "Exploring brain cell type diversity with the Allen Brain Explorer and Cell Types Database" will run concurrently.
