Biographie / Publications

ENP alumna Katherine Matho performed a connectomic analysis of the binaural circuit for sound localization during her PhD. She contributed to the development of a novel technique of multi-color two-photon tissue imaging by synchronizing pulses from an optical parametric oscillator and a femtosecond laser onto three distinct chromophores. Check out the article for more details:

Key words: Two-photon imaging, Brainbow, Multiphoton excitation
