The LightTrack OiS200 Mesoscope for optical imaging and targeted optogenetics is a highly customizable system for in vivo experimentation and behavioural research.
The mesoscope allows scientist perform in vivo imaging across the entire murine cortex as well as targeted optogenetics. The imaging of calcium indicators, intrinsic optical imaging, laser speckle imaging is easily performed with acquisition software that allows for with adjustable frame rate, exposure time, binning, ROI, illumination selection and stimulation parameters.
Users have found the system is ideal for integrating accessories used in behavioral studies as it synchronizes with various other types of behavioral equipment through auxiliary input/output ports.
The integrated and ergonomic system allows you to save lab space and comes at an economical price point making it an ideal research companion for neuroscience, vascular biology, saving 100 hundreds of hours required to build customized mesoscopic rig.
In their excellent review article titled ‘Not so spontaneous: Multi-dimensional representations of behaviors and context in sensory areas’ (ref. https://www.cell.com/neuron/pdf/S0896-6273(22)00588-8.pdf), Avitan and Stringer propose that
