This thesis is based on a project whose aim is to study, at a very low level, the mice brains, in particular, the auditory corticothalamic system. This research takes advantage of an innovative technology, the calcium imaging technique, that allows the visualization of mice brain neurons where the firing cells are visible with a high resolution. The datasets used in this project are movies obtained using the calcium imaging technique. These datasets are passed through a data processing pipeline, that ends with a visualization tool. This tool provided validation and inspection for the community affiliation of the cells. The focus of this thesis is the development of the visualization tool used as part of the project.
