Hands-On Workshop on Neuronal Recordings and Stimulation

Location: Engesserstr. #4, 5th floor
and Neurocenter of Medical Center of University of Freiburg

Date: Tuesday 22nd of May to Friday 25th of May 2018

Registration can be done by email to ulrich.hofmann@uniklinik-freiburg.de

Workshop goals and background

Neuronal recordings from living animals is probably one of the most informative methods in all of neurosciences and provides the basis for a wealth of other techniques. Its first steps can be taken with little effort and will provide a young researcher with the invaluable experience of having recorded "my first neuron" in vivo.

Within our 4-day hands-­on workshop we will have access to five different commercial recording setups and will acquire neuronal responses within several acute in vivo paradigms. It is the goal of this workshop to go beyond single micro electrode recordings and test the most recent developments in multisite microprobes as well.

Preliminary List of Target Areas

  • Barrel Field SI
  • Visual Cortex
  • Thalamus VPM
  • Auditory Cortex
  • Hippocampus
