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.
