Developing 2-photon optical imaging for neural-network studies in medial entorhinal cortex of freely moving mice

Project description

Exploiting Nature’s ‘clean’ wiring diagram to understand neuronal processing

Understanding how the brain processes information is a Holy Grail for neuroscientists and computer scientists alike. Scientists have made tremendous progress thanks largely to significant technological advances supporting experimentation, visualisation, modelling and data analysis. Emerging techniques are enabling scientists to record large ensembles of cells in alert and behaving animals, a huge step on the road to developing realistic network models of signal processing and cognition. The EU-funded ANAT-MEC project plans to make a huge contribution to this effort with large-scale, single-cell recordings of a specific area of the brain whose cells and their connections to the cortex exhibit a unique individual specificity of well-defined functions.
