Nanotechnology in Neuroscience or “How to hack a Brain”

Mardi 3 mars 2015 17:00 - Duree : 2 heures
Lieu : Salle de visio-conférence du Bâtiment André Rassat |RdC | 470, rue de la Chimie | Campus Saint Martin d’ Hères

Orateur : Prof. Sebastian Haesler (NERF and KU Leven, Belgium)

Abstract : Brain disorders pose an enormous burden on affected individuals and health care systems throughout Europe and the world. In order to find new ways to treat, prevent, and cure disease like Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, autism, epilepsy, and raumatic brain injury, a better understanding of the brain is urgently needed. One approach which is essential for basic and translational research as well as for therapeutic intervention, involves physical interfacing with the brain in vivo. Here, nanoelectronic technologies can make a difference, in that ever smaller devices can be created which interface with the brain in intelligent ways for both sensing and manipulation. Silicon-based neural probes have already played a key role in measuring the response properties of neurons in the brain of awake behaving animals. More recently developed technologies such as optogenetics, now also enable controlling neural activity with unprecedented temporal and spatial precision. In my presentation, I will provide an overview of current methods for measuring and manipulating neural activity in vivo, highlight current technological challenges and discuss possible nanoelectronic solutions.

Biography Sebastian Haesler did his PhD work at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, Germany. With support from a long-term postdoctoral fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program he then moved to the Center for Brain Science at Harvard University to join the lab of Prof. Naoshige Uchida. In 2013, he joined Neuroelectronics Research Flanders (NERF) in Leuven, Belgium to start his own laboratory. Founded by KU Leuven, VIB and IMEC, NERF is a young interdisciplinary, academic initiative focused on using and developing novel neurotechnologies. The long-term goal of the Haesler laboratory is to understand how activity in neuronal circuits gives rise to mental function and behavior. Current experimental work is focused on the question of how the brain detects and processes novel stimuli, a fundamental problem of information processing in intelligent systems.
