Numerous cellular subtypes assume stereotypical positions within brain regions where the location is crucial to their function. Therefore, spatial information is imperative for understanding the brain. Spatial gene expression atlases combine transcript and protein expression data with positional information, allowing researchers to uncover new cell types and determine their functions.
