Neurobiology Tissue Chips

Magnocellular neurons (neuroendocrine cells located in the hypothalamus) are some of largest cells in the brain and are responsible for synthesizing the hormones oxytocin and vasopressin. These cells are notoriously difficult to culture, which makes their study difficult. This research effort is attempting to develop a tissue chip matrix for the growth of these cells and their study in drug discovery and disease management.
