Olympus to host fifth annual neuroimaging symposium in conjunction with 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience

Olympus is hosting its fifth annual neuroimaging symposium in conjunction with the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) on Monday, November 17 at 6:30pm in Washington DC. The Olympus Neuroimaging Symposium and reception will be held at the Marriott Marquis Washington, DC, 901 Massachusetts Avenue NW, in the Capitol and Congress ballrooms. It is open to all media and registered SfN attendees.

The topic of the symposium is Functional and Fixed Brain Imaging with Cellular Resolution: The New Frontier of Brain Mapping. Speakers will be leading researchers from Dr. Karl Deisseroth’s laboratory at Stanford University. Dr. Deisseroth and his colleagues have been pioneers in the field of optogenetics and functional brain mapping, and in 2013 published the new CLARITY method for clearing fixed brain tissue to allow for deep imaging and creation of large-scale neural connectivity maps. The proliferation of optogenetic tools, fast calcium indicators and optical stimulation technologies has allowed optical stimulation and functional mapping of cellular responses across large brain areas. This symposium will focus on new technologies in light of the NIH BRAIN initiatives and discuss recent progress and challenges in functional mapping.

Because space is limited, registration for the symposium is recommended; it takes just a moment. To register for the symposium, click here. Media members may call Vincent Park at (914) 523-4777 before noon on November 17 to secure a seat in the Press Area during the presentation.

Olympus has a long history of supporting researchers through education and professional development, and this is the fifth time that the company has convened this groundbreaking annual neuroimaging symposium. Olympus will also be exhibiting equipment for neuroscience applications at Booth 2623 at the SfN meeting, including its new super resolution system, along with instrumentation for high-speed live cell imaging, functional brain mapping, electrophysiology, live-cell confocal imaging, optodigital microscopy, whole slide imaging, advanced fluorescence, fully motorized microscope operation, and more.
