Congratulations to our CAN 2019 Travel Grant winners Kim Gruver (McGill University) from Dr. Alanna Watt’s lab and Azam Asgarihafshejani (Universite de Montreal) from Dr. Jean-Claude Lacaille’s Lab. Both Kim and Azam presented their research at CAN 2019 that involved using Mightex’s Polygon400.
Kim’s (pictured on the left below) research utilizes the Polygon integrated on upright microscope to optogenetically stimulate Purkinje cell axons in the cerebellum during electrophysiological recordings in order to elicit precisely-time action potentials. Azam’s (pictured on the rightbelow) research utilizes the Polygon integrated on upright microscope to optogenetically stimulate individual cells during electrophysiological recordings in hippocampal slices to investigate long-term potentiation.
