PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inscopix celebrates an important milestone that neuroscientists across the world using the company’s brain mapping platform have collectively achieved – more than 100 scientific publications that shed light on how brain circuits shape behavior and cognition, both in health and in disease.
Used by over 400 academic and industry laboratories, Inscopix’s miniature microscope-based brain mapping technology enables the recording and manipulation of brain activity in thousands of neurons simultaneously in freely behaving animal subjects. This unprecedented experimental capability, bolstered by a complete solution from biological reagents to data analytics to world class scientific support, has enabled key neuroscience discoveries in areas including learning and memory, sleep, and social behavior. Some of these insights have already been leveraged in translational research for many difficult-to-treat indications, including Parkinson’s disease and chronic pain.
“We are really proud of the amazing research that our customers and collaborators worldwide are pioneering. To know that our platform and solutions have helped enable more than 100 publications since the first shipment of our nVista™ product in 2013, is extremely rewarding and inspiring,” said Kunal Ghosh, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Inscopix. “We are committed to our customers’ scientific success and we look forward to helping them catalyze new breakthroughs in our mechanistic understanding of the brain.”
Inscopix will continue to celebrate this milestone throughout 2020.
