The brain is tremendously complex, and uncovering its secrets will require huge amounts of high-resolution data.

Today, many aspects of neuroscience are data-starved because of technological bottlenecks. LeafLabs is overcoming this challenge by eliminating these bottlenecks at every stage of the pipeline.

When MIT's Dr. Ed Boyden (2016 winner of the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences) needed to create something that had never been done before, he turned to LeafLabs. His lab, the Synthetic Neurobiology Group (SNG), had developed new ultra dense neural implants that could record, a game-changing, 1000 neurons.
