Christof Koch, Allen Institute for Brain Science

Overview of the work of the Allen Institute for Brain Science on the creation of highly standardized and extensive databases characterizing and cataloguing the complex structure and function of all neurons constituting the mouse neocortex.

These publicly and freely available resources, captured in the Allen Cell Types Database and the Allen Brain Observatory, are aimed at accelerating the pace of research toward understanding how the human brain processes information to perform the many complex tasks underlying intelligence.
