My laboratory studies the neuro-computational principles underlying learning and memory using in-vitro rat cortical neurons on micro-electrode array (MEA) technology. Living neurons or neuronal tissue are placed over the surface of 60 electrodes embedded under the surface of a MEA. These electrodes allow us to measure the activity of a small population of neurons (~100) and stimulate network activity in real-time. The side-bar contains links to the current and past projects we have been working on as well as information about the technologies we use and have created to understand the mechanisms that form the basis of computation and memory in the brain.
