nVista - tiny microscope, big insights
nVista’s core miniature microscope technology lets you see the big picture. Discover how neural circuits shape behavior and gain deeper insights.
Brain imaging in freely moving subjects
Whether you’re an experienced electrophysiologist or a savvy brain imaging expert, nVista will complement your research program.
Conduct longitudinal studies
Perform chronic imaging studies in freely behaving subjects.
Image the same population of cells in the same subject for days, or even weeks.
Study multiple behaviors
Incorporate behavioral paradigms that suit your experiments, including:
spatial navigation, social interaction, operant conditioning, motor learning, and more.
Capture more data
Target, visualize and record population-scale neural activity with cellular resolution in pre-determined cell types. Capture the activity of over 1,000 neurons simultaneously in one field of view using an awake, behaving subject.
Extend your reach
Image most brain areas, including deep brain structures and surface brain regions. Use fast genetically-encoded Ca2+ indicators to tailor your observations to the most relevant cell populations.
