Our neural recording system, featuring a lightweight headstage with a miniature motorized microdrive, offers these capabilities:

  • The headstage mass is about 1.5 gram - it is easily carried by an animal as small as a 20 gram mouse.
  • Motorized searching for neurons can be done during natural wakeful animal behavior - the only time they may be firing.
  • Submicron displacement precision and mechanical stability allow continuous recording even from small cells.
  • The linear displacement shuttle can carry 3 or 4 electrodes.
  • With our microdrive kits and other hardware and software components a complete electronic and mechanical system can quickly be ready to connect to a data acquisition system.
