Abstract

Tissue engineered culture models provide a powerful tool for neuroscience research1. They overcome limitations associated with monolayer cultures of neurons and glia by maintaining cells in a more realistic 3D spatial arrangement, and permit continuous monitoring and control of variables that cannot be achieved in animal models. Here we report the development of a system for recording electrophysiological behaviour in neurons in 3D culture.
