This paper presents a chip-based electrophysiological platform enabling the study of micro- and macro-circuitry in in-vitro neuronal preparations. The approach is based on a 64x64 microelectrode array device providing extracellular electrophysiological activity recordings with high spatial (21 microm of electrode separation) and temporal resolution (from(More)
A platform for high spatial and temporal resolution electrophysiological recordings of in vitro electrogenic cell cultures handling 4096 electrodes at a full frame rate of 8 kHz is presented and validated by means of cardiomyocyte cultures. Based on an active pixel sensor device implementing an array of metallic electrodes, the system provides acquisitions(More)
Neurons extracted from specific areas of the Central Nervous System (CNS), such as the hippocampus, the cortex and the spinal cord, can be cultured in vitro and coupled with a micro-electrode array (MEA) for months. After a few days, neurons connect each other with functionally active synapses, forming a random network and displaying spontaneous(More)
New relations for and interrelations between the current responses of different microelectrode arrays are presented. Interdigitated microelectrode arrays (IDAs: alternating cathodes and anodes) and uniform microband electrode arrays (MEAs: only cathodes or anodes) are treated, and miniaturized systems with planar band electrodes or hemicylinder electrodes(More)
Electrophysiological techniques for the assessment of in vitro neurotoxicology have several advantages over other currently-used methods (for example, morphological techniques), including the ability to detect damage at a very early stage. Novel recording techniques based on microelectrode arrays are available, and could improve recording power. In this(More)
