About the Project
Within this project, electrical activity data collected from engineered, living neural circuits on a chip will be used to characterise the individual cells and the connectivity within the network. The aims of the project are as follows: (i) to design the neural circuits with the desired performance, such as achieving more or less synchronised dynamics, and (ii) to develop effective approaches to control the collective phenomena emerging as a result of interaction between the elements of such systems.
