Seminar: Dr Adam Packer

February 18, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

All-optical interrogation of neural circuits
Thursday 18 February @ 4:00 pm5:30 pm (Sherrington Library)

Dr Adam PackerAdam Packer from University College London will be speaking at this seminar about an entirely optical strategy for manipulating and recording the activity of multiple neurons in vivo with cellular resolution. He has recently published his method with proof-of-principle experiments in mouse barrel cortex for simultaneous two-photon optogenetic activation and calcium imaging.
