README

Tools for accessing the Allen Atlas API from MATLAB. e.g. downloading images, projection data, searching for particular experiments, etc. Functionality isn't complete right now and is a bit rough in places, but everything works and the functions should provide a good template for showing you how to add functionality. For more details see the Allen API documentation. You will need to install JSONlab for some functions to work.

Examples

Get structure list that underlies the Allen Reference Atlas:

>> S=getAllenStructureList;

Keep only the areas that are children of Cerebellum:

>> S=getAllenStructureList('childrenOf','Cerebellum');
