Neuronal Networks Using Miniature Fluorescence Microscopes

Elucidating Neuronal Networks Using Miniature Fluorescence Microscopes

Drug discovery for CNS disorders has suffered a major setback for the past several years compared to drugs for non-CNS disorders. The success rate for CNS drug discovery requires understanding of the target physiology and its interaction with the target site. Another critical feature is predictive validity which can predict the efficacy of test compounds

Neurogenesis in the Adult Brain

Neurogenesis in the Adult Brain

Adult neurogenesis is a dynamic process and provides this region of the brain with exceptional structural plasticity. The dentate granule cell layer of the hippocampus is a primary neurogenic region in the adult brain where newborn neurons are locally generated within the subgranular zone and eventually integrated into existing circuits. These newborn neurons in the

Dr. Ed Callaway using different tools for imaging the mouse visual system to understand the pathways

Of visual perceptions and computations in mice

Inscopix Seminar Series featuring a guest lecturer who works on the visual system in mice. The brain is a complex and dynamic structure composed of heterogeneous neuronal populations intimately entangled with each other. Direct causal and correlative studies are necessary not only for understanding this complex connectivity but also for linking connectivity to function. At
