The mesoscope is not yet incorporated into the Partners Core Management System (PCMS), although we plan to do this in future. Until then, investigators interested in performing pilot studies on the system may contact Lai Ding ( email@example.com) to discuss research interests and training requirements.
The Thorlabs Mesoscope provides 2-photon imaging at subcellular resolution (~0.6 micron) over a very wide (~5mm) field of view, at near-video frame rates. It is designed for intravital imaging in small animals, including the ability to monitor neural activity across multiple brain regions in parallel.
