Improved neural probe can pose precise questions without losing parts of the answers

May 5, 2020

It will now be possible to study brain activity when timing is important, such as the consolidation of memory. A technique for studying individual circuits in the brains of mice has been hampered because the light needed to stimulate neural activity briefly overwhelms the electrodes “listening” for the response. Now, improved shielding within the neural […]
