The BNA are delighted to be working with Scientifica to host this free webinar which will take place on Thursday 12th August from 5-6pm BST.
Join us for a comprehensive introduction to multielectrode recording technologies for in vivo neurophysiology. Whether you are new to the field or have experience with one type of technology, this webinar will provide you with information about a variety of technologies, with a main focus on Neuropixels probes.
Dr Kris Schoepfer, US Product Specialist at Scientifica, will provide an overview of multielectrode technologies available to record from one or more brain areas simultaneously, including:
• DIY multielectrode probes
• Tetrodes / Hyperdrives
• Silicon probes
Dr Sylvia Schröder, University of Sussex, will delve deeper into the advantages of Neuropixels, highlighting the value of channel depth and the types of new biological insights that can be explored thanks to the advancements this technology brings. Presenting exciting data from the optic tract and superior colliculus, Sylvia will also discuss how Neuropixels recordings can be combined with optogenetics, and how histology can be used to identify the location of probes.
