Return sampled substructures of a given brain region

Share:

Description

The function returns for a given brain structure ID all its substructures with available expression data, potentially including the structure itself.

Usage

1

Arguments

structure_id

a brain structure ID, e.g. 'Allen:10657'

Details

The ontology enrichment analysis in aba_enrich tests all brain regions for which data is available, although the region might not have been sampled directly. In this case the region inherits the expression data from its substructures with available expression data. The function get_sampled_substructures helps to explore where the expression data for a brain region came from.

Value

vector of brain structure IDs that contains all substructures of the requested brain region that were sampled.
