ELSC International School
"In-vivo Intracellular Recordings"
Aug 6 - Aug 18 2017


In-vivo intracellular recordings of neuronal activity and optogentic control of this activity are leading methods in modern neuroscience research. The goal of the course is to acquaint young experimental neuroscientists (PhD & PostDoc) with these techniques. The twelve-day workshop will be held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at the Edmond J. Safra Campus in Jerusalem, Israel. It will include lectures and an extensive experimental lab, in which the participants will perform intracellular recordings from cortical neurons and applied optogentics tools to activate these neurons in the anaesthetized and awake preparations. Lectures by internationally acclaimed scientists will demonstrate the power of these approaches in solving major questions in brain research.
