Cerebrasol also has considerable expertise in a number of other key areas of neuroscience, including particular experience in providing first class preclinical translational research into obesity and epilepsy. Our broad track record is demonstrated through our manuscript publications and a key strength is in developing precisely tailored research packages to target out client’s needs. Whether it’s using in vitro or in vivo electrophysiological approaches to investigate mechanism, whole animal behavior or molecular biology techniques to better understand function or side effect profiles, our research teams will provide expert consultancy in putting together the study proposal you require, and our investigators will then rapidly deliver data of the highest quality to drive forward your research programs.
|Disease Areas||Behavioural Tests||Electrophysiological Assays|
In vivo: single unit recordings from most characterised brain regions
Local field potential/population spike recording from hippocampus/cortex
In vitro: whole-cell patch-clamp recordings from brain slices (current/voltage/blind/visualised)
Local field potentials – spontaneous and evoked extracellular recordings from brain slices
Ion channel pharmacology: state-dependency, kinetics, and site of action using cultured and primary dissociated neurones, cell lines
