Microarrays have been used in a wide variety of experimental systems, but realizing their full potential is contingent on sophisticated and rigorous experimental design and data analysis. This article highlights what is needed to get the most out of microarrays in terms of accurately and effectively revealing differential gene expression and regulation in the nervous system.
