Inscopix Community Makes a Strong Showing at Society for Neuroscience 2017 Meeting

Neuroscience 2017

Meetings such as SfN are an important opportunity for us to connect with members of the Inscopix community at a personal and emotional level. It vividly reminds us that scientific research is ultimately a human endeavor and a team sport, and that we need to support and learn from each other as we push the frontiers of neuroscience together.

This year’s Neuroscience meeting in Washington, D.C. fills us with immense pride that we serve such an illustrious community of neuroscientists. You are researchers par-excellence and your pioneering and collaborative spirit energizes us to work even harder to support your scientific endeavors with cutting-edge neurotechnologies and world-class scientific support.

Here, are a few highlights from the conference:

  • The Inscopix community presented almost 50 talks and posters on diverse research areas such as anxiety, fear, action selection, social interactions, learning and memory, sleep, and brain disorders. On the last day of the meeting, there was an entire nanosymposium dedicated to deep brain imaging of neuronal ensembles at single-cell resolution in freely moving mice during motivated behaviors. Most of the presentations used the Inscopix nVista system for calcium imaging or the nVoke system for simultaneous optogenetics and calcium imaging to manipulate one population of neurons while recording activity from another. Presenters included Jose Rodriguez-Romaguera (Stuber lab), Ryan Remedios (Anderson lab), and Kai Yu (Li lab).

Check out this excellent SfN community blog post by official SfN blogger Raymond Sanchez that highlights the work of Mayo Clinic researchers, Drs. Kip Ludwig and Luis Lujan on teasing apart the precise neural mechansims that underlie the therapeutic action of Deep Brain Stimulation using Inscopix technology. In this beautifully written post, Raymond captures the science and fruitfulness of collaboration between academia and industry in advancing our understanding of the brain in health and disease.
