Covariance and entropy analysis to better depict astrocyte effects in neuron-astrocyte networks cultured on MEAs
A project poster under the title of “Covariance and entropy analysis to better depict astrocyte ef-fects in neuron-astrocyte networks cultured on MEAs” was presented by our consortium member Tampere University (TAU) at the 12th International Conference on Microelectrode Arrays for Life Sciences - (MEA Meeting 2022) in Tübingen, Germany.
The study was conducted by a team of researchers from our consortium member Tampere University Barbara Genocchi, Annika Ahtiainen, Jari Hyttinen, Annika Niemi, Narayan Subramaniyam and Jarno M. A. Tanskanen, in collaboration with Kerstin Lenk from the University of Graz and Michael T. Barros from the University of Essex.
The International Conference on Microelectrode Arrays for Life Sciences brings together interna-tional experts in basic and applied research who develop and use microelectrode arrays (MEAs), neural probes, and neurochips. MEAs are used in neuroscience, cardiovascular research, drug dis-covery, and neurotechnology. The 12th edition of the conference took place in July 6-8 2022.
The biennial MEA Meeting has established itself as a unique platform for scientific exchange among users and internationally recognized scientists from academia and industry. It attracts biologists, en-gineers, and physicists from around the globe to Germany. In addition to a program of presentations and posters, leading companies will exhibit their latest developments.
