A MATLAB toolbox for interacting with the Allen Brain Observatory datasets [1]. Currently the Visual Coding - 2P dataset [2] is supported, consisting of neural recordings based on two-photon calcium imaging.

The Brain Observatory Toolbox (BOT) enables users to conveniently work with the experimental neural datasets available from the Allen Brain Observatory. The BOT helps you search and filter the datasets; download and manage the data; and provides useful methods to assist in analyzing neural responses and behavioral data.
