Processing signals from cultured neurons

The signals read from a Biological Neural Network (BNN) unit are complex signals which require dedicated processing. Depending on the MEA spatial density and temporal resolution, gigabits of uncompressed signal data may be generated every minute. While low-scale signal analysis such as identifying the presence or absence of spike bursts may be sufficient for certain …

Reading signals from cultured neurons

From a system automation point of view, a Biological Neural Network (BNN) unit may be seen as an analogue system which can be read, for various analysis and monitoring purposes, through sensors. It may also be commanded (written to) by a diversity of stimulation mechanisms, either chemical, electrical, or even optical. For in vitro BNNs …
