Module 2C: Morphological and Functional Analysis of Human Neurons
In this presentation, Zhiping Pang will introduce parameters for defining human neurons derived from iPSCs. Specifically, Pang will:
- Describe morphological features of human neurons (immature to mature characteristics).
- Introduce morphological and biochemical techniques to characterize human neurons.
- Provide information about functional characterization of human neurons, including electrophysiology (cover intrinsic neuronal membrane property; active membrane property; synapse transmission) and calcium imaging (network activity and contributions of synaptic transmission).
After watching this presentation, participants at all career stages should be able to:
- Outline techniques and methods used to define human neurons derived from human iPS cells.
