Watch this on-demand webinar for a 1-hour demonstration, with question and answer session, about using Pathfinder and Neuropixels Trajectory Explorer, hosted by Ed Friedrich, Life Sciences Business Manager, New Scale Technologies, and Andrew Peters, developer of Neuropixels Trajectory Explorer and Principal Investigator, Peters Lab, University of Oxford Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics.
A paper provides convincing evidence for the benefits of inserting silicon probes slowly into the brain for acute neural recording. The New Scale MPM Multi-Probe Micromanipulator System enables slow, smooth, and fully programmable insertion speeds.
Optogenetics has progressed rapidly from its beginnings in 2005, thanks in part to advances in supporting fields including photonics and micro-mechatronics. The MPM Micromanipulator is unique in its ability to simultaneously position multiple silicon probes and optical fibers for optogenetics.
An article in Nature Communications describes how researchers in Italy combined neural manipulations, resting-state fMRI and in vivo electrophysiology (using the New Scale MPM Multi-Probe Micromanipulator) to probe how inactivation of a cortical node causally affects brain-wide fMRI coupling in the mouse.
