NYSCF – Robertson Investigator Develops New Way to Image Electrophysiology of Cells

NYSCF – Robertson Neuroscience Investigator Dr. Ed Boyden of MIT Media Lab, published his latest research in Nature Methods on a new platform to study electrophysiology in cells using an all-optical method. This platform, called Optopatch, is built from a handful of engineered markers and vectors and enables high-throughput, spatially resolved electrophysiology without the use of traditional electrodes, opening new vistas for neuroscience research.
