Five service cores support research in CBN collaboratories:
- Behavioral Technology
Core develops tools for capturing and quantifying
- Cellular Core develops
techniques, such as viral vectors, to study the
roles of specific receptor proteins in complex
- Imaging Core uses
positron emission tomography (PET) and functional
magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to visualize
and interpret brain activity.
- Molecular Core profiles
gene expression in areas of the brain or individual
neurons using DNA microarray technology.
Core uses attentuated viruses to map entire
neural circuits involved in complex behaviors.
