Wide-field and high-resolution functional mapping of marmoset motor cortex
We will develop a wide-field, high-resolution calcium imaging method to map the functional organization of marmoset motor cortex. We combine this method with previously developed two-photon imaging and optogenetic techniques to further reveal the 3D-functional organization and dynamics in the motor cortex during motor planning and execution. This project will contribute to deepening our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying motor control in the primate neocortex.
