Neural Probes Techniques Webinars 

LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS WITH OUR METHODS-FOCUSED VIDEOS

Methodology for Success...

Join us for a tour de force webinar series discussing a range of neuro-techniques and best practices for using our silicon neural probes in a variety of species and settings from in vitro to head-fixed to free-behaving.

Learn first-hand from experts in the field as they describe their own experimental challenges and how they successfully addressed them using our neural probes. Each webinar includes an interactive Q+A session with discussion.

Zoe Christenson-Wick is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Mount Sinai Medical School and will describe the development and use of PhaSER; a low-latency open-source tool which allows her to perform real-time oscillatory phase estimation and apply optogenetic manipulations at precise phases of hippocampal theta during high-density electrophysiological recordings in head-fixed mice while they navigate a virtual environment.

In systems neuroscience, datasets are multimodal and include data-streams of various origins: multichannel electrophysiology, 1- or 2-p calcium imaging, behavior, etc. Often, the exact nature of data streams are unique to each lab, if not each project. Analyzing these datasets in an efficient and open way is crucial for collaboration and reproducibility. In this combined webinar and tutorial, Adrien Peyrache and Guillaume Viejo will present Pynapple, a Python-based data analysis pipeline for...

In this webinar, we join Brendan Ito and Teja Bollu who break new-ground in their exciting collaboration exploring real-time motor control using the mouse tongue as a novel model system. With the aid of high-speed videography, tongue movement dynamics can be extracted and related to ongoing activity in the anterolateral motor cortex (ALM) during targeted licking and during perturbations evoked by photoinhibition in the ALM, revealing that ALM activity exhibits performance-related signals...

In this combined webinar and tutorial, with Alessio Buccino and Samuel Garcia, we cover the basics of using SpikeInterface for running multiple spike-sorting packages on extracellular raw spike data, recorded using our advanced silicon neural probes. The talk covers a brief history of spike-sorting, current challenges and describes the benefits and benchmarks of SpikeInterface, as a prelude to a hands-on demo / tutorial session (presented in the next webinar). Spikeinterface is a collection of...

Nick Timme (Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis) describes how was able to record from thousands of neurons in behaving rats as they they seek and consume alcohol. Nick also describes a novel PCA-based analysis for large-scale neuronal representation analysis. Reference: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-022-31731-4
