Extracellular Recording System

Project Description

This system is designed for recording extracellular signals using an AC/DC Differential Amplifier with Active Headstage, which is compatible with either glass or metal microelectrodes. Extracellular recordings include:

  • Single Unit Recording – records the electrical activity of a single neuron with a small tip electrode
  • Multi Unit Recording – records electrical activity generated by several neurons
  • Field Potentials – records the field potential generated from indistinguishable activity generated by many cells
  • Amperometry – records changes in the chemical composition of the oxidized components of a biological sample using a carbon electrode

It can also be used to record weak EEG and ECG. Microelectrodes are purchased separately. Please contact your ADInstruments representative for more information if required.

The system includes:

Accessories (purchased separately):
