In this ground-breaking webinar, Hannah Payne from Dmitry Aronov's lab describes her pioneering work exploring hippocampal place-cells in freely-behaving birds. Learn how she used miniaturised technology to overcome the technical challenges of generating high-channel-count electrophysiology data while working with extremely, behaving small animals.

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.

Felicity Gore from Karl Deisseroth's lab describes ChRmine; a novel, red-shifted opsin with high-sensitivity and strong activation dynamics that can drive robust neural responses in deep targets from light delivered from OUTSIDE the skull, thereby removing the need to place often bulky fiber optic cannulas in the brain tissue.

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
Join us for an in-depth presentation by Tahl Holtzman (Founder of Cambridge NeuroTech) covering a general introduction to using our silicon neural probes alongside optogenetic applications in acute and chronic experiments. Surgical approaches for chronic implantation of probes + fibers are also covered. Also hear Huub Terra (Vrije University Amsterdam) describe how he has applied chronically implanted probes with co-aligned fiber cannulas for optogenetic identification of medial prefrontal...
