About  Advanced imaging techniques for cellular and systems neuroscience:

Rapid advances in live imaging of targeted cellular morphologies and functions underpin the emerging revolution in our understanding of synapses, circuits and behaviour. This course will assemble leading experts in developing and exploiting cutting-edge imaging techniques that have been propelling such advances. Topics will include how to combine genetically encoded fluorescence labelling with behavioural designs, micro-circuit monitoring or single-molecule tracking, how to avoid the pitfalls of having false-positive observations and inherent noise and how to best analyse your multi-dimensional data.
