This Core provides investigators with general in vivo neurophysiology services and intensive analyses of higher brain functions at the system level in various models of neurological disorders. The goal of this Core is to understand the functional impact of genetic manipulations observed in reduced preparations (e.g., cell culture and brain slices).

Core Services

This Core provides following experimental services –

Brain region targeted subcortical electroencephalograms (EEG)
Deep brain stimulations
In vivo synaptic plasticity assays (Eg: hippocampal LTD/LTP in awake and anaesthesized animals).
