An interactive brain atlas

| 3 Comments

As one gets older one learns to ration one’s obsessions. I don’t play Angry Birds, stayed away from SimCity, and successfully avoided first-person shooters. However, there’s a web toy that’s about to capture me: The Allen Brain Atlas. I’ve only recently managed to fade out exploring synteny viewers, but I fear that wandering around gene expression networks will capture whatever leisure time that frees up.

Do you know about http://www.zygotebody.com? It’s a zoomable 3D human body atlas, viewable only in Google’s Chrome browser. It can be somewhat addictive.

Uh oh. Another time sink! :)

The ABA is already being used by Dutch scientists to study genes that give rise to assymetries in the brain. http://www.nature.com/nature/journa[…]re11405.html
