Abstract:
In the 1980’s and 90s, robotic DNA sequencers played a huge role in the successful sequencing of the human genome. With the massive US Brian Initiative and European Brain Mapping projects underway, the neuroscientists are finding themselves at a similar junction and are increasingly relying on robotic tools to tackle the twin challenges of scale and complexity of the brain. In this talk, I will present the work we have done in developing scalable, multi-modal, multi-dimensional robotic tools for cellular resolution interrogation of the intact brain.
Specifically I will talk about the robotic technologies, which enable the recording of electrical events from single and multiple cells in vivo in intact circuits with great precision, and support a wide diversity of cellular morphological and molecular analysis experiments. Our robots achieves yields, cell recording qualities, and operational speeds and capabilities that are comparable to, or exceed, those of experienced human investigators and are enabling new kinds of neuroscientific investigations that were previously not possible.
