Lab Expertise Tapped to Understand How the Brain Retrieves Memories
Date:7/16/2014

Livermore, California (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Livermore scientists are developing electrode array technology for monitoring brain activity as part of a collaborative research project with UC San Francisco to better understand how the neural circuitry of the brain works during memory retrieval.

The long term goal of the research is a deeper understanding of the brain's memory processes so physicians can better treat such diseases as Alzheimer's, post-traumatic stress syndrome, schizophrenia and depression as well as finding ways to optimize cognitive function.

The Livermore team, led by principal investigator Vanessa Tolosa, is leveraging previous LLNL work on the artificial retina project to develop and apply a biologically compatible technology capable of recording from thousands of neurons over years, a quantum improvement over what is currently possible. Funded by the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) for three years, the overall project is led by Loren Frank of UC San Francisco.

Tolosa's group is applying Livermore's experience and the Center for Micro and Nano Technologies' unique facilities for fabricating, assembling and testing biomedical devices.

This new generation electrode technology is being designed for compatibility with optogenetic stimulation, a technique for using light sensitive proteins and light to precisely m
