SfN 2019: Phenotype characterization of human iPSC-derived motor neurons that carry the common val66met single nucleotide polymorphism of brain derived neurotrophic factor gene

Why should you measure neural activity?

In vitro neural models are a proven powerful strategy for the study of both neural function as well as complex disorders of the human nervous system. Can the complexity of your neural cell models be revealed with only cell imaging, gene expression analysis, or Western blots? The neurons may have the proper characteristics, but how do they function in a network?
