Feb 23, 2024 - Fiber photometry + EEG + optogenetics!
Chandni and Meiling have put together a beautiful system such that we can simultaneously record from (fiber photometry + EEG) and manipulate (optogenetics) neurons in vivo, while inducing seizures or testing other behaviors. We can't wait to start to use it!
Dec 13, 2023 - Chandni presents at the BERG datablitz
Chandni presents her project to the Basic Epilepsy Research Group at the University of Michigan. Well done, Chandni!
Dec 12, 2023 - Joanna awarded Taubman Emerging Scholarship
Joanna is appointed as the Kenneth Eisenberg Emerging Scholar. The Taubman Institute was founded to support clinician-scientists at Michigan Medicine, to facilitate their success. The generous support provided will be a boon to the Mattis laboratory, and Joanna is honored to join the Taubman Institute community!
Dec 12, 2023 - First seizures recorded under the 2P with both EEG & imaging!
After months of hard work, Meiling successfully recorded seizures under the 2P! She is now able to collect simultaneous EEG and imaging data while evoking seizures with hyperthermia, which will yield lots of interesting data! Way to go, Meiling!
Nov 30, 2023 - Meiling is awarded a DSF postdoctoral fellowship!
Meiling was selected for a postdoctoral fellowship award from the Dravet Syndrome Foundation! The DSF supports and funds research on Dravet syndrome with the aims of finding new treatments and improving the quality of life for people living with Dravet Syndrome. Thank you, DSF, and congratulations, Meiling!
