In an overview of the structure of the mammalian neocortex, this lecture explains how the mammalian cortex is organized in a hierarchy, describing the columnar principle and canonical microcircuits.
The retina has 60 different types of neurons. What are their functions? This lecture explores the definition of cell types and their functions in the mammalian retina.
Optical imaging offers a look inside the working brain. This lecture takes a look at orientation and ocular dominance columns in the visual cortex, and shows how they can be viewed with calcium imaging.
This lesson covers membrane potential of neurons, and how parameters around this potential have direct consequences on cellular communication at both the individual and population level.
This tutorial is part 1 of 2. It aims to provide viewers with an understanding of the fundamentals of R tool. Note: parts 1 and 2 of this tutorial are part of the same YouTube video; part 1 ends at 17:42.
This tutorial is part 2 of 2. It aims to provide viewers with an understanding of the fundamentals of R tool. Note: parts 1 and 2 of this tutorial are the same YouTube video. The portion related to this tutorial begins at 17:43.
The Allen Mouse Brain Atlas is a genome-wide, high-resolution atlas of gene expression throughout the adult mouse brain. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas.
The Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas is a detailed atlas of gene expression across mouse brain development. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas.
This tutorial demonstrates how to use the differential search feature of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas to find gene markers for different regions of the brain, as well as to visualize this gene expression in three-dimensional space. Differential search is also available for the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas and the Allen Human Brain Atlas.
This lesson gives an introduction, opening statements, and motivating arguments for this workshop.
Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are ID numbers assigned to help researchers cite key resources (e.g., antibodies, model organisms, and software projects) in biomedical literature to improve the transparency of research methods.
