Look in the labs | Neural Dynamics
How do different brain regions connect and communicate? Researchers at the Allen Institute for Neural Dynamics are 3D imaging whole mouse brains in high-resolution to learn more. They use a variety of advanced techniques — such as electrophysiology, large-scale anatomical imaging, and optical physiology — to understand how brain signals translate into behavior. This work can help reveal how brains make decisions, interpret the world, chase reward, and avoid risk. In the future, our scientists hope this research will lead to better understanding around neuropsychiatric disorders, depression, and addiction.
