PROGRESSING THE PIPELINE: INFORMING THREAPEUTIC DEVELOPMENT BY IMAGING NEURAL CIRCUITS IN VIVO
Jones Parker, PhD
Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Pharmacology | Northwestern University, Feinburg School of Medicine
Watch this fantastic INSPIRE webinar with the amazing Dr. Jones Parker, PhD who uses miniature microscopes to better understand the function and dysfunction of disease-related neural circuitry in neuropsychiatric disease.
In this webinar, he shows how Inscopix miniscopes were used to image calcium activity in the striatum, a brain region where dopamine release is increased in schizophrenia, and where antipsychotic drugs exert their principal effects. These studies have redefined how we think about the role of dopamine in psychosis and the mechanistic basis of antipsychotic drug efficacy.
