WHY MEASURE NEURAL ACTIVITY?
In vitro neural models are a proven powerful strategy for the study of neural function and complex disorders of the human nervous system. Can the complexity of your neural cell models be revealed with only cell imaging, gene expression analysis, or Western blots? The neurons may have the proper characteristics, but how do they function in a network? Using Maestro microelectrode array (MEA) technology, any scientist can now quickly and easily measure electrical network behavior in live cells at high throughput.
