Optical in vivo brain imaging of unrestrained, behaving animals

Research areas: 

The goal of this project is to develop a light-weigth optical probe that can be mounted on a freely moving mouse and continuously obtain in vivo 3D imaging of neural activity, particularly using Ca2+ fluorescence imaging. MEMS technology is used for miniaturization.
