BrainSpan Atlas of the Developing Human Brain
The BrainSpan atlas is a foundational resource for studying
transcriptional mechanisms involved in human brain development.
The BrainSpan atlas was developed by a consortium consisting of the Allen Institute for Brain Science; Yale University (Nenad Sestan, Mark B. Gerstein); the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute of the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (James A. Knowles, Pat Levitt); the Athinoula A. Martinos Center at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and MIT HST/CSAIL (Bruce Fischl); the University of California, Los Angeles (Daniel H. Geschwind); and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (Hao Huang), with strong collaborative support from the Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program, which is part of the Intramural Research Program of NIMH, NIH (Thomas M. Hyde, Joel E. Kleinman, Daniel R. Weinberger).
