Neuroscape Lab & Glass Brain

The Neuroscape Lab is a unique environment to create and validate novel neurodiagnostics and neurotherapeutics

The Neuroscape Lab is using newly emerging technology with the primary goal of driving rapid translation of neuroscience to real-world solutions. The Glass Brain visualization is one of the lab's projects.

It is being developed as a core research facility at the UCSF Neuroscience Imaging Center (NIC) under the direction of Dr. Adam Gazzaley.

Precision Biosystems Laboratory – Ga. Tech

Principal Investigator: Craig Forest

The Precision Biosystems Laboratory is focused on fundamental engineering advancements, the development of miniaturized, high-throughput robotic instrumentation, and the application of the two to advance biomolecular science. Their research program is in the emerging bio-nano field—at the intersection of bioMEMS, machine design, neuroengineering, genetics, optics, and manufacturing.

IDV – The Vision Institute

Research Director: Serge Picaud
Pierre and Marie Curie University

Built in the heart of the Quinze-Vingts National Eye Hospital, the Vision Institute is one of the most important research centers in Europe on eye diseases.The Institute's goal is to discover, test and develop treatments and technological innovations of tomorrow in order to prevent or limit visual impairment and to improve the autonomy and the quality of life of patients.

Kanold Lab – UMD

Principal Investigator: Patrick Kanold
UMD Neuroscience and Cognitive Science

The major focus in the lab is to understand how information about the world is represented/encoded in the brain, the circuits present in the adult and developing brain and their influence of brain development and plasticity. One focus is on probing the response of the brain to sensory stimuli and the other is to record from small sub-circuits and study their responses and circuit behavior in great detail.

Grossman Institute – Chicago

Principal Investigator: John Maunsell
Neuroscience at University of Chicago

Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior is a new Institute designed to establish a group of scholars working at the intersection of quantitative biology, neuroscience, and the study of social and individual behaviors. The Institute will build upon existing strengths in these fields to address fundamental questions about the biological, social, and environmental factors that shape social behaviors and inter-individual variation in model organisms and humans.

David Kleinfeld Laboratory – UCSD

Principal Investigator: David Kleinfeld
UCSD Neuroscience; Neurophysics Research

Active sensation: how orofacial behaviors, with emphasis on the vibrissa sensorimotor system, encode a stable world view through actively moving sensors.
Microcirculation in the Brain: the structure and control of cortical blood flow, and variations in that flow, at the level of vascular networks down to that of individual microvessels.
CNiFERs: uses of cell-based sensors of signaling molecules to study volume transmission and neuromodulation in behaving animals.

Nelson Lab – Brandeis

Principal Investigator: Sacha B. Nelson
Brandeis University

Despite their functional and clinical importance, the cell types that comprise the neocortex and the molecular mechanisms that specify their properties and connectivity are only partly understood. Nelson Lab studies the development and function of the neocortex in the laboratory mouse using a combination of genetic, genomic and electrophysiological approaches.

Soltesz Lab – UCIrvine

Principal Investigator: Ivan Soltesz
UC Irvine Neuroscience

The Soltesz Lab is interested in how brain cells communicate with each other and how the communication changes after fever-induced seizures in early childhood and after head injury. Our general goal is to understand how neuronal networks function and dysfunction, in order to discover new therapies to prevent epilepsy.

Pediatric Epilepsy Research Lab- Mass General

Principal Investigator: Kevin J. Staley
Neuroscience@Harvard, Massachusetts General Hospital

The lab's research goal is the development of new approaches to the treatment of epilepsy based on a clearer understanding of the necessary steps in seizure initiation and propagation. The two major themes in the lab are neuronal ion transport and the spread of activity in neural networks combining fluorescent imaging of network activity with computerized analysis and modeling to understand how normal and abnormal signaling progresses through neural networks.

Engert Lab – Harvard

Director: Florian Engert
Program in Neuroscience @Harvard

The general goal of the laboratory is the comprehensive identification and examination of neural circuits controlling behavior using the larval zebrafish as a model system. To that end, we have established and quantified a series of visually induced behaviors and analyzed the individual resulting motor components. An extended goal is the study of how changes or variations in the behavior are reflected in changes in the underlying neuronal activity.

Dickinson Lab – Caltech

Principal Investigator, Michael Dickinson
Caltech Neuroscience

The Dickinson Lab studies the neural and biomechanical basis of behavior in the fruit fly, Drosophila. We strive to build an integrated model of behavior that incorporates an understanding of morphology, neurobiology, muscle physiology, physics, and ecology. Although our research focuses primarily on flight control, we are interested in how animals transform sensory information into a code that controls motor output and behavior.

Laboratory of Mriganka Sur – MIT

Principal Investigator: Mriganka Sur
MIT Neuroscience

The goal of the Sur Lab is to understand long-term plasticity and short-term dynamics in networks of the developing and adult cortex, and how disruption of any of these network properties leads to brain disorders. Development of real time, high-speed imaging, activity-sensitive dyes, and light-sensitive ion channels are currently fueling the Lab's exploration of the varied and plastic networks these cells form.

Seung Lab – Princeton

Principal Investigator: Sebastian Seung
Princeton Neuroscience Institute

The Seung Lab uses techniques from machine learning and social computing to extract brain structure from light and electron microscopic images. EyeWire showcases our approach by mobilizing gamers from around the world to create 3D reconstructions of neurons by interacting with a deep convolutional network. The Seung Lab also develops computational methods for relating brain structure to function. Seung Lab is best known for our work on the reconstruction of neural circuits using serial electron microscopy.

Brodylab – Princeton

Principal Investigator: Carlos D Brody
Princeton Neuroscience Institute

Brodylab's focus is on novel quantitative behaviors that allow exploring high-level cognitive questions using powerful emerging tools for studying neural mechanisms in rats. The lab now uses rats to investigate the neural bases of decision making, working memory and executive control using a combination of high-throughput semiautomated behavior as well as computational, electrophysiological, pharmacological and optogenetic methods.
