Get to know your neural cells
Powerful data doesn’t have to mean complicated software. The Neural Module for AxIS Navigator, which includes the Neural Metric Tool and the AxIS Metric Plotting Tool, delivers a straightforward, simplified approach for the set-up, execution, and analysis of MEA experiments—enabling you to explore more than 50 metrics related to neural behavior and answer key questions about activity, synchrony, and network oscillations.
>> Do your neurons fire? - As the defining feature of neuronal function, accurately measuring action potentials, or “spikes,” is critical. Easily quantify the number of spikes, mean firing rate, and more.
>> Are the synapses functional? - Neural connections, called synapses, are reflected in the synchrony of a culture. Implicated in many neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases, synapse health is easy to assess by monitoring the synchrony index and other metrics.
>> Do the neurons form networks? - Neural network activity, indicated by alternating periods of high and low activity across the culture, occur in unique patterns depending on the composition of the culture. Track important network development parameters including the number, frequency, and duration of network bursts.
From complex data to clear results
Viewing your results, sharing your findings with colleagues, and generating publication-ready figures for inclusion in posters and publications is simple with the powerful, intuitive Neural Module tools.
