Neuroscience and Neuroengineering research and education are found across multiple Schools and Colleges at Georgia Tech and span a wide range of interests, many of which pivot on cutting-edge technology.

Neuro@Tech devleops and translates innovative solutions to the challenges of understanding the complexity of the nervour system, treating neurological diseases and injuries, and augmenting neural function. Neuro@Tech uses qualitative systems-level, and integrative approaches to study the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.

Activity measurement at single cell

Principal Investigator: Craig Forest
Georgia Institute of Technology
Title: "In-vivo circuit activity measurement at single cell, sub-threshold resolution"
BRAIN Category: Tools for Cells and Circuits (RFA MH-14-216)

Dr. Forest's team will use a newly developed robot guided technique to measure precise changes in electrical activity from individual neurons that are connected over long distances across the brain, to understand how these connections change when our brains go into different states, such as sleeping and waking.
