Core Resources


The MacBrainResource’s mission is to provide a cost-effective means for researchers to conduct de novo studies on the non-human primate (NHP) brain using materials already in existence

Neurotechnology Core

The Neurotechnology Core is sponsored by the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience. Its mission is to lower technical barriers to scientific exploration by providing customized engineering solutions and training to the Yale neuroscience community.

Rodent Behavior Analysis

The Rodent Behavior Analysis facility provides dedicated space and equipment for investigators of the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience and Department of Neuroscience to examine the behavioral consequences of genetic, pharmacological, or environmental manipulation.


SenseLab contains ten related databases that support experimental and theoretical research on the membrane properties that mediate information processing in nerve cells, using the olfactory pathway as a model system

Additional Microscope Core Facilities

Light-sheet microscope: This microscope is custom-built based on the design detailed in Chen et. al. 2014. It is best suited for live 3D imaging of tissue culture cells and small organisms thanks to its low photobleaching and low phototoxicity. Please contact Lin Shao, PhD for details.
Electron Microscopy: Please contact Xinran Liu, MD, PhD for details.

The Swartz Center

Collaborative research and inter-disciplinary training in Computational and Systems Neuroscience
