Electrophysiology and Behavior
There is a neural network behind every function of the organism, whether cognitive, locomotor or autonomic, that regulates this function.
Traditional electrophysiological systems such as patch clamp, microelectrode systems that can measure and manage the functions of these neural networks at the cell, tissue, organism level in vivo and in vitro, incorporated with advanced technologies such as optogenetics and chemogenetics are used in our Electrophysiology and Behavior Facility.
At the same time, along with these techniques, there are animal tracking systems that can track and analyze animal behavior with behavior tests that can record more than 30 different behaviors.
In this way, the characterization of cellular processes and the neuronal networks underlying a certain function and behavior is possible.
