Speaker:

Dr Alice Stamatakis

Lead Scientist, Inscopix

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.

The scheduled QBI Neuroscience Seminar series are held on Wednesdays from 11am-12pm in the Level 7 Auditorium of the Queensland Brain Institute, Building 79, St Lucia Campus, The University of Queensland. Additional seminars may be held at other times as listed below.
