Neuron 2020 – A Platform for Brain-wide Volumetric Functional Ultrasound Imaging and Analysis of Circuit Dynamics in Awake Mice
NEURORESOURCE| VOLUME 108, ISSUE 5, P861-875.E7, DECEMBER 09, 2020 A Platform for Brain-wide Volumetric Functional Ultrasound Imaging and Analysis of Circuit Dynamics in Awake Mice Published:October 19, 2020DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuron.2020.09.020 Imaging large-scale circuit dynamics is crucial to [...]
Nature Protocols 2021 – Whole-brain functional ultrasound imaging in awake head-fixed mice
Nature Protocols volume 16, pages 3547–3571 (2021) Abstract Most brain functions engage a network of distributed regions. Full investigation of these functions thus requires assessment of whole brains; however, whole-brain functional imaging of behaving animals remains challenging. [...]
JCBFM 2019 – Early brain reorganization of brain circuits after stroke
Early brain reorganization of brain circuits after stroke revealed by functional UltraSound imaging (fUSI) A collaboration between the team of Dr. Alan URBAN from the Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders institute (NERF empowered by imec, KU Leuven [...]
Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews 2017 – Multi-scale neurovascular imaging: advantages and limitations of multi-photon and functional ultrasound imaging
Development of efficient brain imaging technologies combining a high spatiotemporal resolution and a large penetration depth is a key step for a better understanding of the neurovascular interface that emerges as a main factor in [...]
Neuron 2018 – Whole brain imaging in mice during optokinetic reflex (OKR)
In a new study published in Neuron, the team of Botond Roska at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research in Basel collaborated with Alan Urban (NERF) to demonstrate how functional ultrasound imaging can yield [...]
