Reference Atlas

The Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas includes a full-color, high-resolution anatomic reference atlas at seven timepoints accompanied by a systematic developmental taxonomy of mouse brain structures.

In 2013, the reference atlas was updated to provide a deeper level of annotation.

For more information, please refer to the documentation.

E11.5 (TS19) 28 sections (40µm interval) sagittal Level 9
E13.5 (TS21) 15 sections (100µm interval) sagittal Level 10
E15.5 (TS24) 16 sections (120µm interval) sagittal Level 10
E18.5 (TS26) 19 sections (120µm interval) sagittal Level 5
P4 23 sections (160µm interval) sagittal Level 5
P14 39 sections (125µm interval) sagittal Level 5
P56 21 sections (200µm interval) sagittal Level 13
