Title: "Catalyzing discovery through next generation miniature microscopes for circuit neuroscience"

The ability to precisely measure and manipulate activity in neural circuits during natural behavior is essential for a sophisticated mechanistic understanding of the brain. Here, Inscopix, Inc. will review:
1. Their cutting-edge miniature microscope technology for monitoring large scale neural circuit dynamics in
unrestrained animals
2. The scientific breakthroughs that it has enabled in neural coding, functional cell-type mapping, connectivity
mapping, and disease and therapeutics
3. Their latest technological developments including nVokeTM, a miniaturized microscope system for simultaneous imaging and optogenetics

About Neuroscience Seminars

Neuroscience seminars at the QBI play a major role in the advancement of neuroscience in the Asia-Pacific region. The primary goal of these seminars is to promote excellence in neuroscience through the exchange of ideas, establishing new collaborations and augmenting partnerships already in place.

Seminars in the QBI Auditorium on Level 7 are held on Wednesdays at 12-1pm, which are sometimes simulcast on Zoom (with approval from the speaker). We also occassionally hold seminars from international speakers via Zoom. The days and times of these seminars will vary depending on the time zone of the speaker. Please see each seminar listed below for details.
