: Fluorescence microscopy is essential to study biological structures and dynamics. However, existing systems suffer from a tradeoff between field-of-view (FOV), resolution, and complexity, and thus cannot fulfill the emerging need of miniaturized platforms providing micron-scale resolution across centimeter-scale FOVs. To overcome this challenge, we developed Computational Miniature Mesoscope (CM 2 ) that exploits a computational imaging strategy to enable single-shot 3D high-resolution imaging…

EDoF-Miniscope: pupil engineering for extended depth-of-field imaging in a fluorescence miniscope

Extended depth of field (EDoF) microscopy has emerged as a powerful solution to greatly increase the access into neuronal populations in table-top imaging platforms. Here, we present EDoF-Miniscope,



Genome-wide atlas of gene expression in the adult mouse brain

An anatomically comprehensive digital atlas containing the expression patterns of ∼20,000 genes in the adult mouse brain is described, providing an open, primary data resource for a wide variety of further studies concerning brain organization and function.

Machine learning analysis of whole mouse brain vasculature

A deep learning-based framework to quantify and analyze brain vasculature, named Vessel Segmentation & Analysis Pipeline (VesSAP), which uses a convolutional neural network with a transfer learning approach for segmentation and achieves human-level accuracy.

In vivo lensless microscopy via a phase mask generating diffraction patterns with high-contrast contours

In vivo lensless imaging can be achieved via a phase mask that creates diffraction patterns with high-contrast contours, as shown for the imaging of calcium dynamics in the cortex of mice and of microvasculature in the oral mucosa of volunteers.

Fast and sensitive GCaMP calcium indicators for imaging neural populations

The resulting ‘jGCaMP8’ sensors, based on calmodulin and a fragment of endothelial nitric oxide synthase, have ultra-fast kinetics and still feature the highest sensitivity for neural activity reported for any protein-based sensor.

Computational optical sectioning with an incoherent multiscale scattering model for light-field microscopy

This work proposes an incoherent multiscale scattering model in a complete space for quantitative 3D reconstruction in complicated environments, which is called computational optical sectioning and validates the superior performance by imaging various biological dynamics in Drosophila embryos, zebrafish larvae, and mice.

Segmentation of neurons from fluorescence calcium recordings beyond real time

A novel method is developed and characterized, Shallow U-Net Neuron Segmentation (SUNS), to quickly and accurately segment active neurons from two-photon fluorescence imaging videos, which was both more accurate and an order of magnitude faster than state-of-the-art techniques when processing multiple datasets acquired by independent experimental groups.

Three-dimensional printing of glass micro-optics

To meet the increasing needs of high-precision glass micro-optics and address the major limitations of current three-dimensional (3D) printing optics, we have developed a liquid, solvent-free, silica
