Biosensors and actuators for cellular and systems neuroscience Course - France

External Event - 23rd Jun to 13th Jul 2019

23 June – 13 July 2019, Bordeaux Neurocampus, France

Optical techniques have become indispensable for biological research in recent decades. Systems neuroscience has seen some of the most exciting developments in this regard, following the development of genetically-encoded biosensors and actuators that allow multi-modal interrogation of neural circuit function. This course will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the principles behind the design and application of these tools, and enable hands-on experience with optogenetic and chemogenetic actuators and with genetically encoded reporters of calcium, voltage and metabolism. Experimental work will span a wide range of systems and experimental preparations, utilizing standard microscopy methods as well as advanced hardware for parallel excitation and imaging of neuronal circuits. In addition to the practical aspects of utilizing these powerful tools, the course will cover the conceptual issues of data analysis and interpretation
