  • Doric Neuroscience Studio is an intuitive software suite with multiple modalities. It controls Doric hardware and records and analyzes optogenetics, fiber photometry, miniature fluorescence microscopy, electrophysiology, and behavior camera experimental data.

     

    Doric Neuroscience Studio software, with its different modules, controls the following Doric devices:

    • Light sources (LED, Laser Diode, ★LISER™)
    • Fiber Photometry Console
    • Bundle Imaging System
    • Miniature Fluorescence Microscope
    • Electrophysiology Recording Headstage
    • Optogenetics TTL Pulse Generator
    • Behavior Camera

     

    In addition to controlling those devices, the software contains the following data analysis modules for processing acquired data:

    • Microscopy Image Analysis module (motion correction, ΔF/F, ...)
    • Signal Analysis module (fiber photometry ΔF/F, filters, arithmetics, spike finding, ...)
    • Behavior Analysis module (open-field tracking, motion score, and speed)
    • more details to come soon

     

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION : Before upgrading from version 5 to version 6 of Doric Neuroscience Studio software, users of Doric Lenses products should read the following information:

    • DNS v6 requires a firmware update of the hardware

    This is done by the user with Doric Maintenance Tool software included in the installation file. While detailed documentation will be added soon, the 'Check for server updates' and 'Update from server' buttons should work fine.

     

    • DNS v6 saves data into an HDF5 file with the ".doric" extension
    •  Files saved with DNS v6 can be analyzed with its data analyzer modules not available in older versions. HDF5 files can be read with Matlab, Octave, and Python. Code examples are provided to facilitate data analysis with those external applications:
    • MATLAB download
    • OCTAVE  download
    • PYTHON  download
  • Operating System Microsoft Windows 10; 64-bit
    Memory 4 GB RAM minimum
    8 GB RAM recommended
    Processor speed 2 GHz & 4 cores minimum
    3 GHz & 8 cores recommended
