Translational Neuroscience: Neuronal Oscillations and the Electro-Encephalogram (EEG)

In humans, the EEG is a non-invasive method to record electrical brain activity. EEG recording is used extensively for research and diagnostic purposes in a wide range of neurological and psychiatric conditions. Such recordings can show specific rhythmic activity that can be characteristic biomarkers of behavioural states or disease conditions.

At Neurexpert we can record rhythmic or oscillatory activity, such as gamma and theta oscillations, from the in vitro brain slice. This activity can be considered to model human EEG activity. This allows us to evaluate drug action in an in vitro system and relate this to brain activity that can be recorded from humans under different physiological and pathological conditions. This makes the recording of oscillatory activity in brain slices an important tool to translate from the laboratory to the clinical situation.
