Imaging brain activity across the mouse cortex

Posted October 1, 2015

Yale Professor Michael Crair and his team of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are using new genetically encoded calcium indicators to image brain activity transcranially (through the skull) in mice. In collaboration with Todd Constable, Xenios Papademetris and Fahmeed Hyder in the Magnetic Resonance Research Center and Jessica Cardin and Michael Higley in the Department of Neurobiology, his team is mapping activity across spatial scales in individual neurons all the way up whole functional networks in the brain.
