The Neuro-Cellular Imaging Service (NCIS) is part of the Photonic Imaging NeuroTimone (PImaNT) facility. It offers access to optical microscopes for neuroscientists interested in imaging molecular and cellular processes toward better understanding of the functions and dysfunctions of the nervous system. In addition to classical widefield and confocal microscopes, the NCIS provides more advanced techniques such as live-cell imaging, TIRF and super-resolution microscopy (STORM). NCIS staff also offers technical advice, help and training to taylor the imaging and analysis to your scientific question. The NCIS is located in Medicine School building on the Timone campus. Microscopes are accessible to researchers for a fee after initial training on the chosen instrument.
Nikon and the Neurophysiopathology Institute at Aix-Marseille University have partnered to create the Nikon center of Excellence for Neuro-NanoImaging within its cellular imaging facility, focusing on how the latest super-resolutive technique can help in understanding brain cells and their dysfunctions.
