Novel techniques in 3D imaging

Trainee Logan Grosenick, working with Computer Scientist Marc Levoy and Neurobiologist Karl Deisseroth, has been able to apply novel techniques in 3D imaging and 3D structured illumination developed by Levoy to monitor and influence the state of neural activity in populations of neurons in real time. Using optogenetic tools developed in the Deisseroth lab, Grosenick and collaborators can now track patterns of activity in 3D using light field microscopy and can selectively fire individual neurons in sequence or in parallel by dynamically placing spots of light on only those neurons.
