The Evolution in Freely-Behaving Imaging and Optogenetics Technology

To offer neuroscientists the ability to stimulate and visualize individual neurons in freely-behaving animals, Mightex’s engineers went back to the drawing board and pioneered a new path in the in vivo calcium imaging field. Instead of miniaturizing and placing the microscope on the animal – thereby limiting the microscope’s features and the animal’s behaviour – we kept the microscope off the animal’s head by using an imaging fiber.

By keeping the microscope away from the animal’s head, the OASIS Implant accomplishes 2 main goals:

Investigate Multiple Brain Regions Simultaneously

Neurons project to different parts of the brain, and neuroscientists are interested in understanding how these connections affect behaviourThe OASIS Implant uses a bifurcated imaging fiber that connects to multiple GRIN lenses, allowing researchers to perform imaging and optogenetics in multiple brain regions simultaneously.

Fiber Photometry and Cellular-Resolution Calcium Imaging with One System

The OASIS Implant is capable of both population-level calcium imaging using fiber photometry and cellular-resolution calcium imaging. Perform exploratory research using fiber photometry, and delve in deeper to understand the patterns of individual neuron firing.
