The Mainz Animal Imaging Center (MAIC) work program intends to unravel neuronal network mechanisms involved in resilience using state-of-the-art in vivo imaging, including behavioral studies in awake mice. The MAIC comprises a two-photon in vivo live imaging platform and a 9.4T small animal MRI, which both locally and technically are closely connected. These platforms include modalities for in vivo electrophysiology and virtual reality behavioral studies, both integrated with a dedicated two-photon setup. These technologies are offered as a service to all DRZ projects.
Further information about projects and staff of the MAIC can be found here.
