Measuring Neurite Outgrowth

Measuring Neurite Outgrowth

During development, neurons become assembled into functional networks by growing axons and dendrites that connect synaptically to other neurons. Understanding this process of neurite outgrowth is a major focus of neuroscience research and central to drug discovery efforts in neurodegenerative disease and neurotoxicity studies. CDI’s neurons rapidly form complex cell networks and are an ideal model for assessing neurite outgrowth enhancement, inhibition, and protection with target compounds. These changes can be measured using platforms including:
