Cell Explorer: framework for single cell classification

2020-02-01T21:07:49-05:00January 31st, 2020|

Cell Explorer is a graphical user interface (GUI), standardized pipeline and data structure for exploring and classifying spike sorted single units acquired using extracellular electrodes. The large diversity of cell-types of the brain provide the means by which circuits perform complex operations. Understanding such diversity is one of the key challenges of modern neuroscience. These cells have many unique electrophysiological and behavioral features from which parallel cell-type classification can be inferred. The Cell [...]

It’s very easy to break things in biology,” said Loren Frank, a neuroscientist at the University of California, San Francisco. “It’s really hard to make them work better.” Read the full review here and see our related study below.

The Elon Musk challenge

2019-07-20T10:04:59-04:00July 19th, 2019|

In rise of brain implants, blurring lines between man, machine? It sounds far-fetched: With a computer chip implanted in their brains, humans could boost their intelligence with instant access to the internet, write articles like this one by thinking it rather than typing, and communicate with each other without saying a thing ​– what entrepreneur Elon Musk calls “consensual telepathy.” Of course, it’s not really telepathy. It’s radio waves transmitting data from one [...]

Better Memory through Electrical Brain Ripples

2019-06-29T20:22:30-04:00June 16th, 2019|

News article about Antonio’s study in Scientific American by Simon Makin Specific patterns of brain activity are thought to underlie specific processes or computations important for various mental faculties, such as memory. One such “brain signal” that has received a lot of attention recently is known as a “sharp wave ripple”—a short, wave-shaped burst of high-frequency oscillations. Researchers originally identified ripples in the hippocampus, a region crucially involved in memory and [...]
