Blackrock Microsystems Europe, in conjunction with the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, would like to invite you to the

3rd European Utah Array Surgical Training

April 24 – 26, 2017
Training Center of the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone
Marseille, France

Register Now

The Utah Array, a silicon based multi-channel microelectrode, reliably records high-quality spikes and local field potentials from neural tissue, both in-vivo and in-vitro. It is also ideal for stimulation in electrically conductive tissue. Widely used in neural prosthetics, neural engineering, and multiple neuroscience fields, the Utah Array is now breaking new ground in cardiac applications and peripheral nerve stimulation and recording.

The workshop will provide researchers with best practice techniques for the surgical implantation of the Utah Array including:

  • Surgery overview and training videos
  • Surgery demonstration by Dr. Nicho Hatsopoulos, University of Chicago
  • 5 hour practice surgery session under guidance from experts
  • Interactive Q&A session post surgery
  • Demonstration of data acquisition recording and stimulation hardware and software
  • Visit to the Riehle/Brochier lab, Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone

See the complete agenda here.
