Primary Neuronal Culture

Primary neuronal cultures have long been used to study neuronal biology. Animal models are widely used as model organisms since human brain tissue is hard to come by. Neuroscientists are now increasingly using human pluripotent stem cells as complementary or alternative models since they more closely resemble human brain development. However, primary neuronal cultures remain a powerful system in which to study neuronal biology in a simplified and controlled environment.
