Anatomy & Neurobiology - Center for Microelectrode Technology






Mission: The design and construction of computer-based microelectrode techniques to directly monitor biological signaling of intact brain in real time. Related activities include the promotion of this novel technology through training programs and collaborative research projects. The long-term goal is to develop methods leading to improved health care for individuals with brain disorders.

Organization/Affiliation: The Center for Microelectrode Technology, based at the University of Kentucky Academic Medical Center in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology was established in 1991.

Director: Greg Gerhardt, Ph.D., Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology.

Faculty/Personnel: In addition to the director, there are a variety of center associates who are affiliated with CenMeT. Additional personnel include three postdoctoral fellows, six graduate students, numerous research assistants, and many classified and unclassified staff members.

Teaching: Visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students and established investigators have been trained in the applications of microelectrode techniques. The faculty also lectures in graduate courses offered through a variety of departments and academic institutions. A training course is carried out in Lexington, KY every year for the purpose of training researchers to utilize the techniques developed by CenMeT.
