This year’s MCCS workshop will be on an UCLA open-source version of head-mounted fluorescent microscopes. 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 miniscope
  3. Surgery implantation and use in hippocampus and other brain region
  4. Processing software for miniscope data
  5. Future developments of the technology.

The speakers at the workshop will be the very scientists who developed and routinely use these microscopes. We wanted you to know that there is very limited seating available, so please register as soon as possible.
