BuildMoNa Modul "Hybrid Systems"June 26th and 27th, 2012
9.00 - 18.00 BBZ lecture hall
Strengthening the understanding of cell/substrate interfaces concerning complex neuronal organotypic tissues. Neurogenesis and synaptogenesis depenedent on substrate topology and cellular adherence will be the focus of the teaching program. Processes of directed axonal outgrowth dependent on guidance molecules in combination with subcellular changes and cytoskeleton architecture can be monitored in real time using microelectrode arrays. Therefore some basics of microelectrode configuration and surface topology will be presented in a tutorial. The principles field potential recording, impedance spectroscopy in correlation with high resolution microscopy in a nanoscale on various biochips will be trained in theory and practice. Finally some applications of miniaturized recording devices regarding injury and degenerative progress of neurons and their neuritis will be demonstrated.
