Real-time metabolite sensing for feedback control of behaviour in neurological studies

Project description

Diseases of the central nervous system with high impact on society such as stroke or epilepsy are always accompanied by local changes of energy and neurotransmitter metabolism. Miniaturized sensors allow the continuous, precise monitoring directly within the brain tissue, e.g. of the neurotransmitter glutamate. By application of such sensors in an animal model, we investigate underlying mechanisms and therapy methods for diseases of the brain.
