Webinar: Confocal and Two-Photon Microscopy Methods for Imaging the Brain

May 22, 2013

A deeper understanding of brain function requires visualization of the complex architecture of neurons and their connections. With the ability to peer deeper into samples than conventional light microscopy approaches, confocal and two-photon microscopy are proving to be indispensable tools for such brain mapping studies. In this special webinar, two researchers working at the cutting-edge of brain imaging will discuss their applications of the latest confocal and two-photon microscopy techniques. From fluorescent labeling and imaging of neural circuits using the Brainbow system to in vivo imaging of brain structure, function, and blood flow, this webinar will give researchers a deeper appreciation of the potential for new microscopy methods to unlock the secrets of the cellular world. Unique insights into sample handling and processing of multicolor images will also be presented, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
