The Dynamic Brain Circuits cluster sent representatives from Tim Murphy‘s lab to the Canadian Neurophotonics Platform’s summer school at Université Laval to present mesoscopic calcium imaging in mice, including their new approach to imaging from two mice simultaneously (which was developed at the same course last year).
Tim Murphy demonstrates the rig at Laval along with two mice used in the studies, while Jamie Boyd codes in the background.
Dongsheng Xiao from the Murphy lab was on hand for the full 2-week course to guide students from across Canada in experiments.
Jamie Boyd leads a demonstration about using Raspberry Pi for controlling experiments and collecting data to students at the Neurophotonics Summer School, including Ellen Koch from Lynn Raymond’s lab, who attended the conference on funding from the Dynamic Brain Circuits Cluster.
