Following on from the success of last year's workshop, Cambridge Neuroscience is please to host TWO FREE Allen Brain Atlas training workshops on Wednesday, July 17th 2013 from 09.30-12.00 (Adult and developing mouse brain workshop at Psychology, Downing Site) and 13.00-15.00 (Adult and developing human brain workshop at LMB, Addenbrooke's site). These courses have been extended and developed from those delivered in 2012.

Join us for either or both training workshops which will serve to demonstrate the online public resources for exploring gene expression in the nervous system. Basic data access, navigation and usability will be covered, as well as more sophisticated search and visualisation features.

This workshop will touch on the full spectrum of resources available via the Allen Brain Atlas data portal (
but will focus primarily on navigation and search features of the following data sets:

  • Adult human brain

  • Developing human brain

  • Adult mouse brain

  • Developing mouse brain

For a hands-on experience, attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop with Internet/Wi-Fi connectivity so that they can follow along. Please ensure that you have your laptop set up for wireless networking (preferably Eduroam rather than Lapwing). For instructions on how to do this, please click here.

Participation is free but Advance registration is required. Places are limited.
