 Project objective

Understanding how the brain processes information is one of the unsolved grand challenges in science. Moreover, neurological disorders, which disrupt information processing, have an enormous societal and economic impact. Studying information processing in the brain requires measurements of signals as they flow through neural circuits. However, the 3D nature of brain circuits and the speed of information transfer makes it difficult for neuroscientists to measure their properties with sufficiently high spatial and temporal resolution. During the NEUROGAIN ERC project, we developed a novel type of Acousto-Optic Lens (AOL)-based high-speed 3D laser scanner. This technology enables the focusing and scanning of a laser beam at 20-40 kHz. This scanning technology can be added to existing two-photon microscopes to enable 3D imaging of neurons and circuits with unprecedented spatio-temporal resolution. Moreover, it also automatically corrects for brain movement in real-time providing sharper images. This ERC PoC will facilitate commercialization of this 3D scanning technology by providing support to explore the markets in biosciences and beyond, protect the IP and facilitate early stage manufacture and assembly of AOL 3D scanners to supply biomedical researchers.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "3DSCAN" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
