The Xie lab attend the inaugural Gordon Conference on Neural Interface

March 30, 2018

Chong, Lan and three Ph. D students, Hanlin, Xue, and Zhengtuo attended the inaugural Gordon research conference on Neural interface at Galveston, TX. Chong gave an invited presentation on "A Nanoelectronic Platform for Reliable Recording, Large-Scale Mapping and Long-Term Tracking of Neural Activity". Lan was selected to give a a rapid-fire presentation on "Chronic, spatially resolved tracking of hemodynamics and neural activity in neurovascular disease models".
