Structural and functional mapping of marmoset neural circuitry using an ultra high field MRI machine, and generation of genetically-modified marmosets
Marmoset Neural Architecture
The Brain Mapping by Integrated Neurotechnologies for Disease Studies (Brain/MINDS) Project aims for both structural and functional brain mapping of the common marmoset. Marmoset brain functions are relatively close to those of humans, and transgenic approaches can be applied to them. The Laboratory for Marmoset Neural Architecture works on macro-level structural and functional mapping of marmoset neural circuitry using an ultra high field MRI machine. The laboratory also aims to generate disease model marmosets and genetically-modified marmosets that are useful for brain mapping and brain disease research.
