Atlas of Developing Mouse Brain Gestational (Embryonic) Day 12: Schambra, Annotations Complete
Coronal sections of gestational day (GD) 12 mouse heads, every 5th. section, stained with a hematoxylin and eosin (H & E).
New Release of iScope Client Suite v1.2 August 30, 2005
With the New Release of iScope Client Suite v1.2 now you can see over 154 Slides with an average of 550 Hi-resolution stacks for each slide.
As of Gumbo v2.7 and Aria3D v1.5, these two components of the iScope Client now feature more integration - specifically the ability to launch Aria3D from within Gumbo.

The MBL Process
This manual explains the process of embedding brain tissue in 12% celloidin, cutting the tissue with a microtome, staining and coverslipping the brain sections, the images of which are then posted on the internet for research purposes.
The mouse brain atlas August 30, 2005
Horizonal A/J Atlas. This is a high resolution (2.6m/pixel) atlas in 8-bit color
About this A/J Horizontal Atlas: The brain is that of a 365-day-old A/J female with a body weight of 22.8 grams and a brain weight (fixed) of 158.2 milligrams. In vivo brain weight was 386.4 mg. The animal's celloidin case ID number is 005 and you can view one of the two slides used to make this atlas. Shrinkage during fixation and processing is 25.6% (linear). The in vivo grid compensates for this shrinkage. The abbreviations we have used to label the sections conform to those in the Franklin-Paxinos atlas (The Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, Academic Press, San Diego, 1998, ISBN Number 0-12-266070-6).
