Scientists discuss technological advancements and present novel application of new head-mounted and implantable, wireless sensors for neural recording and stimulation in freely moving animals.
During this webinar, sponsored by Triangle BioSystems International (TBSI), scientists present experimental methods and scientific findings from applications of in vivo electrophysiology in freely moving rodents using new head-mounted, wireless sensors.
Specifically, Dr. Melissa Caras and Dr. Dan Sanes from the Centre for Neural Science at New York University, present a case study on auditory cortex recordings collected from freely moving gerbils during learning and task performance. They share methodology, resulting discoveries, and discuss the importance of within-animal, real-time comparisons of neural and behavioral measures. Following, Bradly Barth presents experimentation conducted in Dr. Xiling Shen’s laboratory at Duke University, where they have achieved successful stimulation of the sacral nerve in conscious, freely-moving, untethered mice using a hermetic, fully-implantable, wireless nerve stimulator from TBSI.
