Imaging Core (Director: Joshua Trachtenberg)
The function of the Imaging Core is to test novel in vivo imaging approaches and image analysis algorithms, streamline these techniques for in vivo imaging of cortical plasticity, and supply the optimized protocols and software to the investigators in the Center.
Mouse Genetics Core (Director: Alcino Silva)
The Core resides in a SPF facility at UCLA and facilitates the back-cross, mating and dissemination of the mutant mice required by all three Projects in the center.
Administrative Core (Director: Alcino Silva)
The administrative core will direct, and coordinate the numerous fiscal, scientific, educational, and outreach functions of the Center.
The cores are the heart of our Center since they play a key role in the collaborative network that underlies all of our major projects
