PUMA 3D Printed Open Source Microscope

PUMA 3D Printed Open Source Microscope

PUMA is 3D printed open source portable modular microscope with augmented reality, fluorescence, phase contrast, epi-illumination, epi- and trans-polarisation and other features. You can either build it fully DIY or purchase the basic scope ready made and upgrade it as required (see below for details).

The Open-Source UCLA Miniscope Project

The Open-Source UCLA Miniscope Project

One of the biggest challenges in neuroscience is to understand how neural circuits in the brain process, encode, store, and retrieve information. Meeting this challenge requires tools capable of recording and manipulating the activity of intact neural networks in freely behaving animals.

Diffusion MRI Q-ball CSA-ODF and Hough Tractography

Diffusion MRI Q-ball CSA-ODF and Hough Tractography

This is a diffusion-weighted MRI processing Matlab toolbox (including binaries), which can be used to: β€’ Compute the Q-Ball Imaging Orientation Distribution Function in Constant Solid Angle (CSA-ODF) (Aganj et al, MRM 2010).

Stalefish

Stalefish

Stalefish is a tool to analyse gene expression from ISH or other histology slice images. From your 2D brain slice images you can build a 3D expression surface from a brain structure such as the isocortex or the hippocampus.

Autopilot

Autopilot

Autopilot is a Python framework for performing complex, hardware-intensive behavioral experiments with swarms of networked Raspberry Pis. As a tool, it provides researchers with a toolkit of flexible modules to design experiments without rigid programming & API limitations.

BioAmp EXG Pill

BioAmp EXG Pill

BioAmp EXG Pill is a small, powerful Analog Front End (AFE) biopotential signal acquisition board that can be paired with any 5 V Micro Controller Unit (MCU) with an ADC. It is capable of recording publication-quality biopotential signals like ECG, EMG, EOG, and EEG, without the inclusion of any dedicated hardware or software filters.

NeuroDesk

NeuroDesk

Neuroimaging researchers require a diverse collection of bespoke command-line and graphical tools to analyse data and answer research questions. Installing and maintaining a neuroimaging software setup is challenging and often results in un-reproducible environments.

OpenSpritzer

OpenSpritzer

Designed for ease of use, robustness and low-cost, the β€œOpenspritzer” is an open hardware β€œPicospritzer” as routinely used in biological labs around the world. The performance of Openspritzer and commercial alternatives is effectively indistinguishable.

Spikeling

Spikeling

Understanding of how neurons encode and compute information is fundamental to our study of the brain, but opportunities for hands-on experience with neurophysiological techniques on live neurons are scarce in science education.

Clinica

Clinica

Clinica is a software platform for clinical research studies involving patients with neurological and psychiatric diseases and the acquisition of multimodal data (neuroimaging, clinical and cognitive evaluations, genetics…), most often with longitudinal follow-up.
