This volume is a new, standard, full-colour, high-resolution brain atlas of C57BL/6J male mouse whose extensive images are enhanced by a hierarchically organized taxonomy of mouse brain structure. "The Allen Reference Atlas SET": contains the most frequently annotated coronal sections in the brain in unprecedented anatomical detail; utilizes molecular markers distinctly captured in the online atlas database, refining the delineation of brain structures, and thereby lending a unique accuracy to the reference atlas; and, features absolutely stunning image resolution. Every brain structure annotated in the atlas is assigned a distinct colour based on its hierarchical position in the brain. This colour scheme not only provides the best visual effect to emphasize brain organisation, but also facilitates unique definition and segmentation. It consists of a book (with CD-ROM) and a comprehensive set of four DVDs. This atlas is an essential resource for basic and clinical neuroscientists, molecular biologists, genomicists and genomics researchers. It is also of interest for informaticians and informatics researchers, drug development researchers, physiologists, and computer scientists.
