The UNC Neuroscience Center received an Institutional Development Grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to purchase an Olympus Fluoview FV1000-MPE multiphoton microscope for imaging the developing nervous system. Imaging the dynamics of neuronal development and differentiation in real time and in situ, at the systems, cellular, and sub- cellular levels, is fundamental to our ability to elucidate the function of specific genes underlying neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative syndromes.
