3D Brain Atlas

The Brain Explorer 3-D viewer is a dynamic tool associated with the Allen Human Brain Atlas that allows you to visualize human brain anatomy and gene expression information from the Atlas database.

A growing collection of online public resources integrating extensive gene expression and neuroanatomical data, complete with a novel suite of search and viewing tools.

The Brain Explorer 2 software is a desktop application for viewing the human brain anatomy and gene expression data in 3-D. Using the Brain Explorer 2 software, you can:

  • View a fully interactive version of the Allen Human Brain Atlas in 3-D;
  • View gene expression data in 3-D: inflated cortical surfaces are colored by gene expression values of nearby samples;
  • View expression data from different donors side-by-side;
  • Explore anatomically-labeled MRI images and cortical surfaces.


This video provides a brief walkthrough of the interactive 3-D viewer, demonstrating its basic features for exploring human brain anatomy and gene expression.
