Imaging Brain Activity

With genetic modification of the animals, their neurons can emit fluorescent light as a function of the brain activity (i.e., the neurons "blink" as they fire) which literally makes the brain activity visible. The main challenge is to record the optical signals at a high throughput and we develop and applying optical imaging techniques to tackle this.
