Allen Brain Atlas

July 17th, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Health, Mapping, Science | 3 Comments »

Paul G. Allen had a vision that recent advances in computer science, bioinformatics, image analysis and the sequencing of the human genome could be brought together to answer one of the most complex questions in human biology—what is the brain and how does it work? He brought this vision to a renowned group of neuroscientists and advisors, and the Allen Institute for Brain Science was born.
