How to Use μLED Optoelectrodes: Surgery, Data Collection and μLED Control

In this webinar, we will cover the following topics: preparing μLED probes for acute and chronic recordings, attaching μLED probes to recoverable microdrives, implantation of μLED probes in a chronic, freely moving animal; collecting data and controlling neuronal activity with μLED probes using different types of function generators.

Mihály Vöröslakos received his MD in 2012 and PhD in 2020 from the University of Szeged, Hungary. Mihály is currently working with Professor György Buzsáki at NYU as a postdoctoral researcher. His research focuses on the development and translation of non-invasive neuromodulation techniques. Mihály is also working with engineers at Professor Euisik Yoon’s laboratory at the University of Michigan. He has tested and validated various silicon probes, including mLED probes in rodents. He has been helping to expedite the development of useful tools for the neuroscience community. Mihály is an instructor at the MINT (Multimodal Integrated Neural Technologies) workshop where he teaches how to use mLED probes (surgery, data collection, troubleshooting).
