Researchers Automate Process of Recording Data from Neurons

Posted May 09, 2012 9:20 AM

From The Engineer - News:

Researchers in the US have developed a way to automate the process of finding and recording information from neurons in the brain. A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Georgia Institute of Technology used a robotic arm guided by a cell-detecting computer algorithm to identify and record data from neurons in a living mouse brain. This automated process was found to be more accurate than that carried out by a human experimenter - as well as eliminating the need for months of training - and could enable scientists to classify and analyse the thousands of different types of cells in the brain.

I thought up this great way of recording data from neurons, but I forgot it.
