Editorial Article: Become an Expert at Longitudinal Characterization of Human Stem Cell-Derived Neurons

Join this free webinar to learn how to measure neuronal and network activity using calcium imaging

15 Nov 2018


The ability to measure neuronal activity and network activity in a longitudinal manner is paramount to the study of neurological disease. Due to the synaptic plasticity of neuronal cell cultures, identifying dynamic changes between normal and mutated models is critical for understanding changes in network connectivity.

In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Louis Dang, clinical lecturer at the University of Michigan, will present findings on evaluating differences in activity between normal and diseased states; describe how the IncuCyte S3 live-cell analysis system makes it possible to analyze differences in activity and connectivity; show detailed examples of research findings; and suggest a reproducible, relevant phenotypic readout for long-term network changes.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • How to differentiate iPSCs into neurons using forced Neurogenin-2 expression
  • How to acquire and analyze calcium imaging data over time, using the IncuCyte® S3 live-cell analysis system
  • The importance of long-term analysis of neuronal activity to evaluate differences in activity and connectivity for iPSC derived neurons

Who should attend:

Scientists working in life sciences, especially neuroscientists and those using induced pluripotent stem cells.

Attendance certificate:
All webinar participants can download a certificate of attendance, with a learning outcomes summary document for continuing education purposes.
