An exploration using multiphoton fluorescence microscopy

UCI Neuroimmune Observatory

The UCI Neuroimmune Observatory gives investigators access to multiphoton fluorescence microscopy to image immune cells and neurons in the central nervous system of living animals.


The microscope lets investigators peer into the brains of awake mice to watch the interaction between immune cells and neurons during new experiences and in response to brain disease.


Specifically, investigators looking into microglia will use the observatory to document how microglia respond to specific local changes throughout the brain.
