Direct access to cellular brain activity is required to study the brain computations that support cognition and behaviour. Neural probe technology has progressed significantly in recent years and neural probes have become a main tool to reveal the relation between neural circuits and cognition.

Steady advances in areas of fabrication methods, structural shapes and materials, have led to neural probes with increased measurement density, more functionality and higher reliability. However, further improvements are needed to address remaining challenges in long-term, stable 3D cellular mapping and stimulation of neuron activity with high temporal and spatial resolution across the brain.

My goal is to develop an integrated light-weight 3D neural probe system for connected neuron mapping in local circuit. It is an international collaborate work between Taiwan and Belgium, multidisciplinary teamwork between National Cheng Kung university (NCKU), Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders (NERF), Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre (imec) and Micro- en Nano-Systemen (MNS) will be validated in the project.
