Methods were recently developed for culturing neurons from adult rat hippocampus using the serum-free medium Neurobasal with B27 supplement. To determine whether adult cultured neurons have normal electrical properties, we studied cultures from rats of three age groups: (1) embryonic; (2) 10-11 months old and (3) 35-36 months old. Neurons had a polarized(More)
Calcium channels affect many neuronal functions, including membrane electrical excitability, synaptic transmission, cellular homeostasis, gene transcription, growth, and development. We used recently developed methods for serum-free culture of adult and embryonic rat neurons to study the development of voltage-sensitive calcium currents. We compared(More)
BACKGROUND Over the course of recent years smartphone and tablet technology has evolved rapidly. Similarly, the sphere of healthcare is constantly developing and striving to embrace the newest forms of technology in order to optimise function. Many opportunities for mobile applications (i.e. 'apps') pertinent to the healthcare sector are now emerging. (More)
