FINAL PROGRAM

THE MCCS WORKSHOP November 10, 2016 from 2-5 PM right before the 15th Annual MCCS Symposium and Poster Session

This year’s MCCS workshop will be on an UCLA open-source version of head-mounted fluorescent microscopes. This free workshop will be at UCSD right before the MCCS meeting in San Diego (2-5 PM, November 10, 2016).  These are custom built wearable microscopes similar in capability to the microscopes developed in the Schnitzer lab. The workshop will focus on: 1- Imaging principles and miniscope design; 2- Assembly of miniscopes; 3- Surgery implantation and use in hippocampal CA1; 4- Processing software for miniscope data; 5- Future developments  of the technology. The speakers at the workshop will be the very UCLA scientists that developed and routinely use these microscopes, including Denise Cai, Daniel Aharoni, and Tristan Shuman  (Silva, Golshani and Khakh’s laboratories). We wanted you to know that there is very limited seating available, so please register as soon as possible at http://www.iclm.ucla.edu/MiniscopeWorkshopMCCS.html
