We just posted the preprint for a method that allows 2-photon imaging while mice freely rotate horizontally and run around a real (or virtual) 2-D environment. The system allows attaching other instruments (ephys, opto, etc.) to the headpost. We think … Continue reading
For my PhD work I made extensive use of 2-photon imaging of layer 6 cell bodies at depths of up to ~850μm using GCaMP. This is somewhat deeper than we (and others) have been able to image comfortably using other … Continue reading
I’ll be presenting some new work on the role of cortical layer 6 on representing sensory change at SfN on Sunday, morning session, Poster O17.
Our paper ‘Thalamic reticular nucleus induces fast and local modulation of arousal state’ just went online at eLife. In this study we found that optogenetic drive of TRN induces slow waves in associated regions of neocortex, similar to the local … Continue reading
Our paper on active sensorimotor processing in mice that I worked on with Tansu Celikel is out now. Thanks also to Dave Herman for running a bunch of very challenging moving gap crossing experiments! Voigts J, Herman DH, Celikel T. Tactile Object Localization … Continue reading
