The Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics focuses on the development and application of microscopy imaging techniques for measuring neural circuit dynamics in the functioning brain.

The Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics was created by a generous gift from Jeff ’86 and MacKenzie ’92 Bezos.

Neural dynamics refers to the patterns of nerve cell electrical and chemical activity in which information is created, manipulated, and stored.

The focus of the Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics is the development and application of microscopy imaging techniques for measuring neural circuit dynamics in the functioning brain. The Center will host both commercial and custom-built optical instrumentation for large-scale monitoring and optogenetic perturbation of neural activity.

The Bezos Center will be a critical asset for Princeton researchers working toward a circuit-level understanding of computation in the nervous system.
