A neuron should always be studied in context of a neuronal network. NeuroNexus helps provide the tools. ~Dr. Rune Berg
Dr. Berg’s design is a modification of the Buzsaki probe with the electrode distance being larger to match the size and distance of neurons in the spinal cord as opposed to in the hippocampus. Having the contacts on the edges allows sampling from a larger volume of tissue, and sampling with multiple recording sites greatly improves spike sorting quality. Now, Dr. Berg and his lab can start unraveling the mystery of motor pattern generation in the spinal cord.
