This project will generate a single-cell resolution molecular atlas of the brain of the rhesus macaque an Old World monkey that is a much closer relative to humans than other model organisms. Our data will directly inform the distribution and function of key cell types across the lifespan of a primate, and furthermore support the development of molecular interventions that empower the study, and potentially treatment, of brain disorders. As part of the BICCN, our data will contribute to a remarkable resource for researchers studying a broad range of neurobiological and neurobehavioral human disorders.
