Inauguration of The JOINT - The Electrophysiology, Optogenetics & Behavior workshop

The JOINT is an interactive workshop facility at Dept. Biomedicine (building 1182), for neuro-scientific research using electrophysiology, optogenetics, and behavioral experimental set ups. The JOINT workshop facility houses state-of-the-art equipment, such as electrophysiological/imaging set ups allowing simultaneous imaging/multiple whole-cell recordings in vitro and in behaving rodents, as well as optogenetics and behavioural set ups. Further expansions such as installing high-end 2-photon laser scanning microscopy for in vitro and behaving studies have been envisioned. The facility is organized as a large shared room (room 319) with electrophysiology rig spaces, a separate slicing area, and neighboring animal storage and test rooms. Furthermore a separate High-end Optogenetics Workshop is available (room 324) for instrumentation and design of holographic imaging and stimulation experiments.
