Long description:

Inscopix is developing technologies to accelerate discoveries in brain science. Traditional neurotechnologies limit brain mapping to either fine detail of a few neurons or large scale regions in low resolution. The ideal solution is to study at the mesoscale level, with thousands of neurons observed simultaneously in live subjects during cognitive tasks. By using technological advances for imaging large-scale neural activity in a naturally behaving subject, Inscopix has created a Miniature microscope that can be mounted onto the skull of a living animal subject to observe its brain activity. It works by using a genetically encoded protein, GCaMP6, which binds calcium and emits a transient fluorescent signal. With this technology, Inscopix can decode brain circuits.
