Intracortical Circuitry in the Barrel Cortex of FMR1-KO Mice

Intracortical Circuitry in the Barrel Cortex of FMR1-KO Mice

With $40,000 in funding from FRAXA Research Foundation in 2005, Dr. Karel Svoboda and his team at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory imaged neocortical circuits in Fragile X mice to determine the functions of the abnormal dendritic spines found in Fragile X syndrome.

Imaging of Neocortical Dendritic Spine Maturation in FMR1 Knockout Mice Using Two-Photon Laser Scanning Microscopy

With $30,000 in funding from FRAXA Research Foundation in 1999, Dr. Karel Svoboda and his team at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory explored the changing nature of dendritic spine motility by imaging neocortical circuits in Fragile X mice.
