An article about Peter Petersen's postdoctoral study in the lab. The outcome of this question is that, today, Peter Petersen, a 37-year-old Danish neuroscientist, is working in the laboratory of world-renowned Professor György Buzsáki at New York University. And funding from the Danish Council for Independent Research and a Lundbeck Foundation postdoc scholarship made it all happen. Read the full story on the Lundbeck Foundation's website.

Metal microdrive and head cap system for silicon probe recovery in freely moving rodent

2021-05-21T09:36:32-04:00May 21st, 2021|

Metal microdrive and head cap system for silicon probe recovery in freely moving rodent High-yield electrophysiological extracellular recording in freely moving rodents provides a unique window into the temporal dynamics of neural circuits. Recording from unrestrained animals is critical to investigate brain activity during natural behaviors. The use and implantation of high-channel-count silicon probes represent the largest cost and experimental complexity associated with such recordings making a recoverable and reusable system desirable. [...]

Public access to electrophysiological datasets collected in our lab

2021-01-06T10:11:33-05:00January 6th, 2021|

The Buzsaki Lab is proud to present a large selection of experimental data available for public access. We publicly share more than a thousand sessions (about 40TB of raw and spike- and LFP-processed data) via our public data repository. The datasets are from freely moving rodents and include sleep-task-sleep sessions (3 to 24 hrs continuous recording sessions) in various brain structures, including metadata. We are happy to assist you to use this data. Our goal [...]

CellExplorer: a framework for analyzing single-cells

2021-01-06T10:09:04-05:00January 6th, 2021|

CellExplorer 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 provides 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. CellExplorer is [...]
