The architecture of neuronal information processing is organized in three levels: intra-cellular signaling, communication between cells and network communication. To understand each of these levels measurements of electrophysiological characteristics are necessary. Compound-induced activity profiles recorded with microelectrode arrays (MEA-neurochips) are sensitive and selective as well as robust and stable, allowing a precise pharmacological "phenotypic fingerprinting" to assess their therapeutic potential.
Using these multi-parametric information we study a wide range of phenomena within network activity patterns, e.g. inhibition, enhancement, regularity, synchronicity, or connectivity.
