Synaptic connectivity in micropatterned networks of neuronal cells

Angela Katrin Vogt
The presented thesis describes the formation of functional neuronal networks on an underlying micropattern. Small circuits of interconnected neurons defined by the geometry of the patterned substrate could be observed and were utilised as a model system of reduced complexity for the behaviour of neuronal network formation and activity. The first set of experiments was conducted to investigate aspects of the substrate preparation. Micropatterned substrates were created by microcontact printing of physiological proteins onto polystyrene...
