Cellular Constituents of the Cultures Despite substantial progress in immunocytochemistry order 100mg trazodone free shipping medications with acetaminophen, a quantitative cell identifica- tion in mixed neuronal-glial cultures is still extremely di‰cult cheap 100mg trazodone with amex treatment diabetic neuropathy. Neuronal counts per microscope field are greatly dependent on seeding densities and early adhesion con- ditions that are di‰cult to determine accurately. An estimate of neurons in culture as percentage of total cells depends as much on neuronal survival as on glial survival and proliferation. Antibody staining depends on culture age, tissue source, and level of di¤erentiation of cells. For these reasons we consider the Bodian stain (Bodian, 1936) or Loots-modified Bodian (Loots et al. Long-Term Contact between Neural Networks and Microelectrode Arrays 183 Table 9. Neurons were stained with neurofilament monoclonal antibodies (Sigma; catalog no. Despite density fluctu- ations, a stabilization of neuronal counts past 30 days (vertical line) is apparent. After 30 days, neuronal loss is approximately 10% in 100 days or 3% per month. Although the percentage is influenced by variable glial proliferation, primar- ily before treatment, the table clearly shows a substantial neuronal cell death (ap- proximately 35%) between 15 and 30 days in vitro. It is di‰cult to estimate the neuronal cell death during the first 2 weeks after seeding because molecular markers are not expressed reliably (Whithers and Banker, 1998). The numbers on the columns in A and B indicate the number of di¤erent cultures in each dataset. The numbers in C also represent the number of cultures and are the same for each set of columns in C and D. A linear regression for the scatter plot shows a neuron loss of approximately 3% per month. These results are in general accord with the more qualitative observations found in the literature. Control of Glia in Culture In the adult CNS, there can be found at least ten times as many glia cells as neurons (Streit, 1995). Microglia represent 5–20% of the entire central nervous system glial cell population, and there are at least as many microglia as there are neurons (Kreutzberg, 1987; Perry and Gordon, 1988). Although these ratios are not the same at the time embryonic tissue is isolated for culturing, glia represent a major constituent of the dissociated tissue and continue to develop after seeding. Cultures overgrown with glia provide poor optical data and were at one time thought to lose more neurons than cultures treated with antimitotics. We have recorded from cul- tures that were allowed to grow unrestrained (untreated) and cultures treated with either cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C, 7. The results show a di¤erence in electrode yield (number of electrodes Long-Term Contact between Neural Networks and Microelectrode Arrays 185 80 20 70 max S/N mean S/N 60 15 50 40 10 30 31 19 7 31 19 7 20 5 10 0 0 A untreated ARAC-C FDU-U untreated ARAC-C FDU-U B 1400 35 untreated 30 1200 1000 ARAC-C 25 800 FDU-U 20 600 20 15 400 11 10 200 6 5 0 0 C native BCC BCC/STR D native BCC BCC/STR Figure 9. Untreated cultures have more microglia and reaveal a thicker glial carpet with a typical cobblestone e¤ect. Treated cultures at 7 days have fewer microglia, reveal more processes, and have a thinner glial carpet. At 4 weeks in vitro, cultures such as the one shown in A will have most neurites covered by glia and reveal only the tops of neurons as phase-bright bodies. The percent of channels with activity greater than 2:1 is the same for ara-C and FdU, but is significantly lower for the untreated cultures. Whether this relates to a reduced number of neurons, reduced axonal growth, or increased glial insulation of recording craters is not known at this time. Signal-to- noise ratios (SNRs, both maximum and mean) were not significantly di¤erent; global means of spike and burst rates (per minute) also show a significant di¤erence ( p < 0:05, Student-t) in the native state (normal medium) among untreated and treated cultures. FdU inhibits thymidylate synthase, the enzyme that produces thymidine, thus pre- venting DNA replication (Liu et al.
