Samuel Garcia and Alessio Buccino describe the SpikeInterface project which aims to navigate the 'jungle' of spike-sorting packages under a common wrapper. The talk covers a brief history of spike-sorting, current challenges and describes the benefits and benchmarks of SpikeInterface.
Tahl Holtzman (Founder of Cambridge NeuroTech) offers a general introduction to using our silicon neural probes in a variety of experimental settings encompassing anaesthetised, head-fixed and freely-behaving studies. Surgical approaches for chronic implantation are also covered.
Tahl Holtzman (Founder of Cambridge NeuroTech) offers 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.
Huub Terra (Vrije University Amsterdam) describe how he has applied chronically implanted probes with co-aligned fiber cannulas for optogenetic identification of medial prefrontal cortical neurons in freely-behaving rats performing self-initiated 5-choice-serial-reaction-time-task. Detailed single unit photo-identification criteria are discussed.
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; dura-repair techniques are also discussed.
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 this webinar we explore the use of probes beyond the central nervous system... 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 stress responses in rats.
