Coffee Break with Dr. Gabriela J Martins

Our social skills pervade most aspects our life, defining our role in the family, workplace, society and beyond. People affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) face challenges in social interaction and communication, experiencing core symptoms such as repetitive behaviors and restricted interests. The lab of Rui Costa at Columbia University explores the neurobiology of ‘self-paced’

SfN 2019: Moving into Non-Human Primates

Each year, more than 30,000 brain researchers come together at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual meeting to present their latest research. 2012 was our first year at SfN, where we launched our very first product –nVistaᵀᴹ– a miniature microscope-based system to map brain circuit activity at single-cell resolution in thousands of neurons in naturally

Coffee Break with Dr. Walter Fischler

The sense of smell is an evolutionarily primitive one, and the species that rely on it for survival are many. It isn’t surprising, then, that a sophisticated neurobiology has evolved to allow for external olfactory information to be transmitted, processed and translated into behavioral responses. This is what Dr. Walter Fischler studies as a postdoctoral

Meet the 2019 Inscopix Tech Award Winners!

Believe us when we say that this year’s record number of abstract submissions for the Inscopix Tech Awards had us dancing for joy- the neuroscience being done by all of the submitters is truly inspiring! Thank you to everyone pioneering such innovative circuit neuroscience using Inscopix technology, to empower you is what we work towards

Dentate Gyrus

Dentate Gyrus 101

Some of us collect books, some others collect stamps or coins or shells or shoes, but almost every one of us collects one thing- memories. We love them or hate them, we hang them on our walls sometimes, we’re defined by them. An important region of the brain that encodes for new memories is the

Hippocampal Neurogenesis

The Old & The New: A Tale of Hippocampal Neurogenesis

As we go through life, our brain has the amazing capacity to change and adapt to the body and the external environment. This is known as neuroplasticity, and an especially plastic part of the brain is the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus neurogenesis, responsible for important cognitive functions such as memory formation and certain

Kip Ludwig

Coffee Break with Kip Ludwig

Neuromodulation has the potential to transform how we treat chronic conditions of the nervous system, from pain, injury, and even certain neuropsychiatric conditions. Dr. Kip Ludwig leads the Bioelectronic Medicines Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin. There he develops next-generation neuromodulation therapies that use minimally invasive strategies. One way Kip explores how neuromodulation affects neural

Podcast: Amygdala Circuits Encoding the Unpleasantness of Pain

Chronic pain affects 290 million people worldwide, and is an extremely unpleasant experience to endure every day. No wonder global sales of chronic pain medications are the highest of any neuropharmaceutical sales topping over 26 billion globally. The need for pain relief that doesn’t produce unwanted side effects, like a serious addiction, has reached an

Coffee Break with Hyungbae Kwon

If we want to understand how the brain develops and learns, neuroscientist Dr. Hyungbae Kwon sees we have to look at the scale of interacting circuits. To do so, Hyungbae’s lab at Max Planck Florida (the lab’s moving to Johns Hopkins University in 2019) explores the way experience affects neural circuits using state-of-the-art tools, like

Neuroimaging Techniques

Teaming up with Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience to drive neural circuit discoveries

The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI), a global leader in neural circuit research based in Jupiter, FL and Inscopix, Inc., a pioneering neurotechnology company based in Mountain View, CA announced a new partnership to catalyze MPFI’s neural circuit research with Inscopix’s platform and capabilities for mapping brain circuit activity. Beyond empowering the researcher
