This page is a work in progress. Once your Miniscope system is up and running, it is important to be able to test, and debug, all aspects of the system before moving to imaging in vivo. The sections below will discuss the procedures we use to validate Miniscopes we build before using them in experiments. As you become more comfortable with using Miniscopes some of the sections below can be skipped.

Testing Coaxial Cable Connection

Checking for Light Leakage

Testing the Stability of the DAQ Software

Imaging Calibration Slides
