CSAIL Researchers Use Brain as Guide

A group of researchers will be working towards greater efficiency in the way man-made electrodes influence and gather information about cellular activity. Professor Russ Tedrake, along with Alexandre Megretski and H. Sebastian Seung of MIT and Hongkun Park of Harvard, will be working towards a greater understanding of the dynamics of these electrodes, called planar patch-clamp arrays.
