Multiscale neural imaging - from synapse to whole organism


Opens:12 February 2018

Advances in microscopy allow imaging on scales ranging from single molecules to whole organism. This project involves developing a microscope that will allow images of whole invertebrates (likely C. Elegans nematode worms) be correlated with nanoscopic (super-reolution) images of sub-cellular regions within them.
