Allen Brain Atlas

This could be interesting. Paul Allen has invested $100 million for a three-year project to map the map each of the 20,000 genes related to the human brain, in an effort to help understand the workings of the mind and clues to causes of disease.

Here's an article about the project from the Jan 2004 issue of IEEE Spectrum. (The whole issue is worth reading, and is online). Posted by brian at January 3, 2004 08:55 PM
