Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper reports a microfluidic approach for assessing network formation in human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons. For the first time, we show the ability of iPSC-derived neurons to form functional synaptically driven networks within a controlled microfluidic environment, thus providing an in vitro stem cell based model for studying dementia.
