Observing the activity of human-derived neurons in health and in disease

The combination of two technologies—induced pluripotent stem cells and high-density microelectrode arrays—offers an unprecedented platform to study human brain activity in detail outside the body.    Back in 2006, Prof. Yamanaka and colleagues revealed a technique to reprogram adult skin cells into embryonic-like cells called induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs. This Nobel Prize winning technology enables access to human neurons derived from adult blood or skin cells in a high-throughput manner, thus opening up the possibilities to study neurological…

Capture the activity of thousands of communicating neurons all at once

Latest Neurochip published in Nature Communications Today, a new generation of high-density microelectrode array (HD-MEA) technology has been published in Nature Communications (link). This publication not only demonstrates the excellent performance of the chip, but also describes the large-scale extraction of neuronal metrics, such as axonal conduction velocity, and includes impressive showcases of applications with various neuronal preparations. The developed versatile platform for label-free, live-cell electrical imaging will further accelerate drug discovery and basic research in the field of neuroscience.…
