The pages in the Image Atlas section contain digitized images of tissue sections processed to reveal structural features of auditory brain areas generated in prior and ongoing projects.

The following assays are represented, but not for all species or brain areas:
  • Cytoarchitecture (Nissl stains)
  • Myeloarchitecture (Myelin stains)
  • Chemoarchitecture
  • histochemistry
  • immunohistochemistry
  • in situ hybridization

Images from the following species are included, or slated for inclusion, in this atlas:
  • Developing Mouse (postnatal)
  • Macaque (adult)
  • Marmoset (adult)
  • Cat (adult)

Atlas pages contain single bright-field and multi-fluorescence images and image montages stitched from large numbers of single images.

Magnification ranges from low (2-4x) to high (60-100x) confocal.

Zoomify Images
Many images on this site are linked to full-resolution versions, created with Zoomify software plugin for Photoshop. The scalable image will open in a separate browser window with tools to navigate, zoom, and pan to the maximum viewable resolution. Notes: Some browsers and operating systems may not support this function. Be patient - the datafiles are large and may take some time to download for viewing.

Note: This is a prototype site under development. Content will be expanded as resources permit to include both new and archival data. Posting priority will be given to new and ongoing projects.
