3-photon imaging of mouse brain activity is published in Nature Methods

  Dimitre G Ouzounov, Tianyu Wang, et al.  record spontaneous activity from up to 150 neurons in the hippocampal stratum pyramidale at ~1-mm depth within an intact mouse brain. Using three-photon microscopy at 1,300-nm excitation, the authors of a recently published Nature Methods paper, demonstrated that functional imaging of GCaMP6s-labeled neurons can be achieved beyond … Continue reading 3-photon imaging of mouse brain activity is published in Nature Methods

Early career scientists named as inaugural Mong Fellows in Neurotech

The inaugural Mong Family Foundation Fellows in Neurotech were named on June 17 and went to three pairs of early career scientists. They will work jointly under the mentorship of faculty across Cornell to advance technologies that promise to provide insight into how brains work, as well as strategies to fix them when they break. … Continue reading Early career scientists named as inaugural Mong Fellows in Neurotech

Melissa Warden and Jesse Goldberg awarded New Innovator Awards

Neurotech Advisory Board members Melissa Warden and Jesse Goldberg were each awarded New Innovator Awards from the National Institute of Health. The new innovator award is one of the hardest to receive from the NIH and is designed to “support exceptionally creative, early-career investigators who propose innovative, high-impact projects.” http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/2015/10/three-researchers-receive-nih-new-innovator-awards
