Paper Abstract

Recent advances in nanotechnology have stimulated a renewed interest in multisite recording of electrical activity of network of neurons, particularly using nanobiomaterials. This paper presents the simulation of electrical response of neurons cultured on microelectrode arrays based on the electronic equivalent model using Cadence PSD 15.0. The results were compared with those previously published models such as Kupfmuller and Jenik's model, McGrogan's Neuron Model which are based on the Hodgkin and Huxley model. We have developed and equivalent circuit model using discrete passive components to simulate the electrical activity of the neurons. It is observed that present equivalent model gives more accurate results with short computation time.
