Highly integrated CMOS microsystems to interface with neurons at subcellular resolution


To understand, how functions and characteristics of neuronal networks arise from the concerted interactions of the involved neurons, it is necessary to have methods that allow for interacting with neuronal functional subunits and ensembles - somas, axons, dendrites, single neurons, and entire networks - at high spatiotemporal resolution and in real time. It will be demonstrated how CMOS high-density microelectrode array systems, featuring several thousands of electrodes at densities of more than 3’000 electrodes per mm2, can be used to record from or stimulate potentially any individual neuron or subcellular compartment on the CMOS chip.
