Neural Probes Techniques Webinars 


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.

In this webinar we explore the use of probes beyond the central nervous system... Joze Guzman (Institute of Molecular Biology, Austria) presents a unique insight in to the emerging field of human brain organoids and describes how he has optimised this preparation for single unit recording with optogenetic identification. In tandem, Roberto Lopez (University of Michigan) shows how he has used our probes to uncover highly novel single unit functional organisation within the adrenal medulla during...

Hear from leading-lights within the behaving marmoset field: Patrick Jendritza (Ernst Strungman Institute) describes his multi-target chronic probe implants across the visual cortices, encompassing 196-channel recording of single units with optogenetics for > 1 year in each animal. Reza Shadmehr and Paul Hage (Johns Hopkins University) describe their innovative approach for daily acute probe penetration spanning many months in head-fixed behaving marmoset to record cerebellar Purkinje cells;...

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...
