Light Beads Microscopy (LBM) with the White Dwarf OPCPA for high-speed, volumetric brain imaging

A new microscopy approach developed by the Vaziri Lab at Rockefeller University takes the next steps for high-speed, volumetric recording of neuroactivity in the mouse cortex. The developed so called Light Beads Microscopy (LBM) is a mesoscopic imaging approach able to record up to 1 million neurons within 5.4×6×0.5 mm^3 volumes at 2 Hz frame rate.

Hence, the technology can enable neuroscientists to understand cortex-wide information processing and ultimately how the brain works.

Measurements have been performed with the White Dwarf OPCPA for multi-photon microscopy.
