Integrated Calcium Imaging and Optogenetics

The integration of in vivo cellular-resolution calcium imaging with simultaneous or sequential optogenetic manipulation is enabled by the nVokeTM System to causally link neural circuit activity with behavior.

  • Record cellular-resolution calcium imaging with optogenetic manipulation
  • Visualize and manipulate the same field of view longitudinally
  • Study the impact of discrete manipulation on behavior and its underlying network dynamics

Inscopix Data Processing

Inscopix Dual Color Data Processing

Streamline your miniscope data analysis with the Inscopix Data Processing Software (IDPS), our complete and validated pipeline with no required scripting expertise.

  • Identify unique cells and extract Ca2+ traces easily using PCA/ICA or Inscopix CNMFe
  • Automatically filter identified cells by setting SNR and cell-size criteria
  • Perform longitudinal registration to identify the same cells over days or multiplane registration to identify unique cells in up to three planes

The nVoke System

The nVoke System integrates in vivo calcium imaging with simultaneous or sequential optogenetic manipulation to measure and manipulate brain circuit dynamics.

The nVoke system is exactly what we needed to link changes in activity of interneurons to calcium signaling in striatal output neurons. It enabled us to formulate a new hypothesis about how fast-spiking interneurons function to regulate motor behavior.
