About Neurescence, Inc.
Based in Toronto, Canada, Neurescence (neurescence.com) was founded in 2015 by a team of scientists dedicated to developing better methods for studying the central nervous system. The company holds recent patents for simultaneous multi-region optical imaging and stable detachable fiber-lens connectors with a focus lock mechanism. Neurescence’s Chromatone system enables in vivo calcium imaging and optogenetics across multiple brain and spinal cord regions, at single-cell resolution. The use of a detector that is off-animal enables both higher frame rate capture and the use of more sensitive cameras. Neurescence combines this novel optical imaging technology with machine learning to overcome critical challenges in neuroresearch.
