Inscopix: scoping out better preclinical models via live brain imaging

Inscopix uses brain imaging to make better preclinical models for CNS diseases

With a platform to perform in vivo brain imaging, Inscopix Inc. is aiming to fix the poor predictive power of preclinical animal models for CNS diseases. Its advantage is the ability to use changes in neural circuits, rather than behavioral readouts, as a measure of disease.
