HSTG-16-NT

The fundamental unit of processing in the brain is the neuron. One of the most frequently used tools to uncover the function of these neurons is in-vivo electrophysiology. Extracellular action potential recording (unit or spike recording) is a popular method to explore the function of such neurons and requires equipment to minimize artifacts which can be generated during head movements. NeuroTek produces a small, light weight, electrical circuit, called a headstage. When interfaced with electrodes, the headstage will sample electrical activity from the brain and protect them from interference.
