    Spatial Registration of PsychENCODE Datasets
    To facilitate ongoing efforts to spatially map and annotate cell
    types in the human cortex, we generated a datahub for the
    scientific community to explore these integrated spatial and
    single cell datasets. This contribution represents a landmark
    reference resource for registering cortical cell types identified
    from snRNA-seq to spatial domains, and assessing enrichment
    of clinical gene sets from large-scale association studies, snRNA-
    seq studies and bulk RNA-seq studies within a spatial context.
    The molecular organization of the human neocortex has been
    extensively studied in the context of its classic histological layers.
    However, emerging spatial transcriptomic technologies, such as the
    10x Genomics Visium spatial gene expression platform, enables
    unbiased identification of transcriptionally-defined spatial domains
    that reflect features of existing brain architecture.
    Using spatially-aware unsupervised clustering across all samples,
    we generated a comprehensive, data-driven molecular
    neuroanatomical atlas. We defined unique gene expression
    signatures for unsupervised spatial domains at different
    resolutions: one broad resolution (k = 9), which most closely
    aligned with classic histological layers, and finer unsupervised
    resolutions (k = 16, 28), which identified novel spatial patterns. We
    identified 29 fine resolution cell type clusters that we reduced to
    12 layer-level associated cell types. We added cellular resolution to
    our molecular atlas by performing cell type spot deconvolution
    using the snRNA-seq data as reference. Using publicly available
    neuropsychiatric disease-associated data, we identified gene sets
    enriched across the spatial domains.

    Higher Resolution for Layer 1
    • Spatially registered nuclei on to classic layers reduces
    dataset to 12 layer associated cell types
    • Spatial registration on finer resolution novel domains may
    reveal additional information about cell type clusters
    • Spatially registered multiple DLPFC snRNA-seq datasets
    shows spatial specificity of some cell types
