Biological information processing often utilizes specialized electrogenic cells, such as neurons. In order to understand how neural networks process information we develop systems with single cell specificity to detect and manipulate neural signals. In particular we develop the interface between living neurons and electronic sensor devices. In this lab tour we will provide an overview of our work in sensor development, characterization of the interface between devices and neurons, and controlling neural behavior both topologically and optogenetically.

Visitors must wear closed shoes and clothing that meets the shoes, i.e., sneakers and jeans.

Online registration is mandatory and all places are subject to availability; you will receive an email confirmation once your place on the seminar is reserved. This lab visit will be offered twice, from 10:15am to 11:00 and from 11:15am to noon. When you register, please pay attention to the starting time.

This Labs! event is offered in collaboration with the IFF Spring School.
