Webinar: Advances in Neurotechniques – Methods that Reveal the Structure and Function of the Brain

July 28, 2014

Elucidating the mind’s inner workings is one of the remaining challenges facing scientists today. Since Ramón y Cajal’s first illustrations of neuronal structures, neuroscientists have benefited from new ways to visualize the microscopic components within the brain. The development of new, advanced imaging techniques holds the promise for elucidating a better understanding of the how the brain works. Already, cutting-edge tools such as optogenetics and CLARITY offer researchers novel methods for peering into the structure and function of the brain. This webinar will explore the most recent neurotechniques and how these are being used to advance our knowledge of the brain.

During this webinar, speakers will:

  • Provide an overview of new neurotechniques
  • Shed light on how to use these new technologies to advance research
  • Present their research using optogenetics and CLARITY
  • Answer your questions live during the webinar!
