Inscopix prepares for new era in neuroscience

Fluorescence microscopy has been a key enabling technology in recent neuroscience research, playing a significant role in the activities of programs such as the BRAIN Initiative and in the strides now being made in the field of optogenetics. But one significant hurdle to date has been successfully applying the technique to live animals, and using it to visualize the neural processes and networks involved when a living subject interacts with its environment and makes decisions.The answer could be a lightweight and miniaturized microscopy platform developed by California-based Inscopix, which has successfully been used in trials on rodent animal models and could ultimately be used on humans. Now marketed as the nVista system, the platform also demonstrates that the time is right for greater industrial involvement in ongoing neuroscience research, according…
