COSMOS to light up the brain

Written by

The lab of Karl Deisseroth at Stanford has developed a novel technique called Cortical Observation by Synchronous Multifocal Optical Sampling (COSMOS). This optical system allows researchers to simultaneously record the activity of cortical neurons…across the entire cortical surface! The technique and its application have been published in Neuron.

The authors have also created a website to help other researchers interested in building a COSMOS system. Way to go with cooperation and sharing of expertise!
