The aim of this work is to present a new technique for defining interconnected sub-populations of cultured neurons on microelectrode arrays (MEAs). An automated microdrop delivery technique allows to design and realize spatially distributed neuronal ensembles by depositing sub-nanoliter volumes of adhesion molecules in which neurons grow and develop.(More)
We use a multiwell micromechanical cantilever sensor (MCS) device to measure surface stress changes induced by specific adsorption of molecules. A multiplexed assay format facilitates the monitoring of the bending of 16 MCSs in parallel. The 16 MCSs are grouped within four separate wells. Each well can be addressed independently by different analyte(More)
The interaction of trimethoxysilane (TMS) and of 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (MPTMS) with silica and silicon wafers has been studied by the mean of transmission FTIR spectroscopy. TMS vapor adsorption on silica's silanols results in the formation of Si-O-Si bonds at room temperature, mainly through the elimination of one methanol molecule per TMS(More)
