Doric Neuroscience Studio

Our vast product line allows you to assemble systems for miniaturized fluorescence microscopy, fiber pho-
tometry and optogenetically synchronized electrophysiology. The Doric Neuroscience Studio is an intuitive software which allows you to control the hardware and acquire all the required data simultaneously.


DORIC STUDIO V5.3.3.14 (72MB)

More details

The free Doric Neuroscience Studio software incorporates different modules for each devices connected. The existing modules allow you to:


Device control:

  • Control our programmable LED Drivers.
  • Control our Laser Diode Module Driver.
  • Control our Ce:YAG Fiber Light Source Driver.
  • Acquire the voltage of a chosen light source input BNC.
  • Acquire data for our Fiber Photometry System.
  • Record feed of our Behavioral Tracking Camera.
  • Control our Fluorescence Microscope Driver.
  • Control our Optogenetically Synchronized Electrophysiology System.
  • Control our Optogenetics TTL Pulse Generator (OTPG) to create complex pulse protocols.

In addition to controlling the devices, the software contains freely available analysis modules that can be used to process data acquire from the different systems.

Data analysis:

  • Microscope Image Analysis module (image alignment, ΔF/F, trace export)
  • Photometry Analysis module (channel arithmetics, ΔF/F).
  • (Beta) Optrode Simulator for calculation of illumination volume in the brain.
  • Electrophysiology Analysis module (filters, arithmetics, spike finding and sorting).
  • (Available soon) Behavior Tracking Analysis module (open-field tracking, travel distance and speed).

RELEASE UPDATE v5.3.3 (2019-04-04)


  • Add real-time frequency filters (IIR) for Analog input linear mode.
  • Add ADD button to create a new channel without closing the channel creation window.
  • Reduce the creation time of the Analog Out channel.
  • Fix automatic creation of Digital In when used as a trigger source.
  • Fix saving of a single DigitalI/O as input.


  • Add "Smoothing Edges" function, allowing to define the rising and falling time of a square pulse (requires headstage firmware >= 2.5.0).
  • Add ADD button to create a new channel without closing the channel creation window.


  • Add ADD button to create a new channel without closing the channel creation window.


  • Greatly optimize the image processing speed.
  • Fix bug that induces a dropped (black) frame at the beginning of a recording.
  • Fix Gated mode frame number inconsistencies.


  • Fix empty resolution bug for B&W USB3.0 camera.
  • Now use ThreadCount = 1 as the default option in the Saving Options.


  • Add ADD button to create a new channel without closing the channel creation window.


  • Fix the phase delay when applying the frequency filters.


  • Add Image Alignment key frame selection options: From another recording, from an image shifts file previously saved.
  • Possible to use a key frame from another file in the batch alignment process.


  • Fix Spike Finder crash when finding only one spike or if the cluster count is greater than the spike count.

  • CAD$0.00

    Doric programmable LED Drivers are available in 1-, 2-, and 4-channel versions. When connected to a Connectorized LED having an eprom memory, the LED Driver recognizes the LED wavelength and automatically sets the maximum current value to avoid accidental overdriving.

  • CAD$0.00

    This driver is designed to control single-color Fluorescence Microscope Bodies.

  • CAD$0.00

    The Laser Diode Module Driver available in 1, 2 and 4 channel models is controlled manually or by a computer via USB.

  • CAD$0.00

    The Electrophysiology Console is a FPGA based component that control bilateral wireless communication between the computer and the Fi-Wi headstage.

  • CAD$0.00

    This FPGA based data acquisition unit synchronizes the output control and the acquisition of the input data. This device seamlessly integrates with Doric Neuroscience Studio, which provides the user-interface for multi-channel photometry experiments.
