First Comprehensive Gene Map of the Human Brain

"Until now, a definitive map of the human brain, at this level of detail, simply hasn't existed," the CEO of the Allen Institute for Brain Science, Dr. Allan Jones, said in a written statement, adding that the atlas gives "never-before-seen views into our most complex and most important organ."
