Using a device to hold a 1mm c.elegans nematode developed at the University of Southampton, it has been found possible to record the brain activity of these tiny creatures and it is hoped to use the information to test drug compounds for neurotoxicity and neuroactivity. The device was developed by electronics engineer Chunxiao Hu and Professor Lindy Holden-Dye of the neuroscience electrophysiology department.
