Emerging Imaging Technologies: From the Synapse to the Brain

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

John Isaac, NINDS

Natcher Conference Center - Balcony C

This symposium will bring together groups at NIH working at the cutting edge using imaging and other optical techniques to understand brain function from the scale of single synaptic connections, through single neuronal function, small circuits up to whole brain imaging in humans. This exciting mixture of techniques will not only show off the great utility of imaging in understanding the complex interactions of neurons but will also highlight a major strength of the intramural NIH program in the development of new imaging technologies.
