New Imaging Frontiers: From mapping to viewing dynamic life processes
Connectomics imaging helps us map brain and other organs in detail. Researchers are exploring multiple imaging modalities for mapping biological structures, from multiphoton imaging with SCALEVIEW clearing to new darkfield illumination in slide scanning systems. As researchers map biological connectivity in fixed tissue, questions of functional imaging in live animals become increasingly important. Two leading researchers will discuss fixed and live tissue applications.
Speakers include Dr. Harvey Karten (University of California, San Diego, CA) and Dr. Claudio Vinegoni (Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA)
Dr. Karten will discuss Whole Slide Imaging and its impact on connectomics and cytoarchitecture, including new high contrast darkfield to reveal fine neuronal processes. Dr. Vinegoni, will discuss his recently published methods for eliminating movement during live animal imaging.
