Using robots to retrieve valuable info from living brains




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.




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.
