Using robots to retrieve valuable info from living brains

 

Brain

 

Researchers have developed a way to use robotics to find and record information from neurons in the living brain. They began their studies with a living mouse brain.

 

The method could be particularly useful in studying brain disorders such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, autism and epilepsy.

 

Neurons

 

They developed a robot arm – guided by a cell-detecting computer algorithm – to identify and record information from the brain’s neurons.

 

Such access offers useful information about the brain’s patterns of electrical activity, its shape, even a profile of which genes are turned on at a given moment.
