Article shows New Scale Technologies' micropositioning technology at work in the lab

The Allen Institute for Brain Science was featured in the June 15 Wall Street Journal article, “The Quest to Decode the Brain.”  Micropositioning expertise from New Scale Technologies helps make this work possible. From the article:

"… researchers and engineers are developing more powerful and easier-to-use devices to study the brain. Some allow scientists to monitor more neurons than was previously possible in a living brain. Others grant researchers access to the hard-to-reach regions of the brain. Their big advantage: The tools can record the fast patterns of electrical signals the brain uses to convey information in more detail than before. It’s this neural Morse code scientists want to decipher…"

Scientists hope these deeper data dives will help further the understanding of how networks of neurons work together during learning, memory, vision and movement. That could lead to better therapies for patients with brain-related diseases like dementia, epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. The researchers use New Scale’s MPM Multi-Probe Micromanipulator System to position their miniature neural probes. M3-LS Linear Micro Stages in the MPM System allow multiple axes of precision motion in extremely small spaces.
