Access Physiology and Morphology Data and Models
Electrophysiology recordings, morphology image data, 3D reconstruction and neuronal model parameters for a cell can be downloaded from links from the cell's electrophysiology and morphology pages. Example pages for a Somatostatin (Sst) cell with both perisomatic biophysical and generalized leaky integrate-and-fire (GLIF) models:
All data can be programmatically accessed via the Allen Brain Atlas Application Programming Interface (API).
There are example queries specific to the Cell Types Database available to help you get started.
The accompanying Allen Software
Development Kit (SDK) provides code for accessing electrophysiology data in the
Neurodata Without Borders file format. Neuronal reconstruction files
are available as SWC files. The Allen SDK also provides sample code demonstrating how to download neuronal
model parameters and run your own simulations. All biophysical models require
NEURON to be installed, whereas the GLIF models use a custom
Python simulator included in the SDK.
