Synaptic plasticity is thought to be of central importance for information processing by the nervous system. Additionally, specific neuronal connectivity patterns in the brain are implicated to play a role in the perception, processing and storage of incoming signals. Experimental control over connectivity within functional neuronal networks is therefore a promising approach in research on signal transduction and processing by the nervous system. A cell culture system is presented that allows… CONTINUE READING
