BrainMIC Course: 4D Advanced Microscopy of Brain Circuits

We will be updating this page soon with information about the 2017 course. FRET-based sensor of inhibitory synaptic activity, SuperClomeleon, expressed in Starburst Amacrine Cells in the retina. Courtesy of the Feller Lab at UC Berkeley. In January 2016, UC Berkeley offered its first annual course at the new ZEISS Berkeley Brain Microscopy Innovation Center (BrainMIC). The course focused on the newest optical tools, imaging systems, and analysis methods that are being developed for the study of neuronal circuits. Each day was divided into lectures and hands on laboratory experience using emerging BRAIN Initiative neurotechnologies, including optogenetics, calcium imaging, super resolution imaging, and cleared tissue imaging (e.g. CLARITY). Students rotated through demos at each of eight microscope stations, then selected a single microscope station for a two day project. Read more, “New Zeiss Berkeley…
