Hungarian 3D brain imaging tech handed over to Canada’s McGill University

A Hungarian brain-imaging microscope employing 3D imaging technology, Femto3D Atlas, was handed over to McGill University in Canada on Thursday in cooperation with the Hungarian embassy in Ottawa.

Hungarian ambassador Maria Vass-Salazar said the embassy considered R+D+I to be a priority in strengthening Hungarian-Canadian relations, adding that interest in value-added high-tech Hungarian products was strong in Canada.

McGill’s vice-president, Anja Geitman, said the Femtonics device aptly illustrated Hungary’s technological expertise and capacity for innovation, and testified to the importance of international cooperation in high-level research.

Neurons are scanned in 3D using the device, allowing representation of complex neural activity.
