Electrophysiology was hard

Electrophysiology can be simple

Electrophysiology is fundamental to neurobiology and the understanding of neurological diseases. Unfortunately, capturing this activity has been historically tedious. Now using Maestro MEA (microelectrode array) technology, any scientist can quickly and easily measure electrical network behavior in live neurons in a 96-well plate.
