The Neuropixels headstage optimizes the power and density of Imec’s Neuropixels 1.0 probes by enabling multiprobe and untethered (wireless) recording. The Neuropixels headstage records neural signals from up to three Neuropixels 1.0 probes simultaneously for both tethered and untethered recording experiments.
- Record up to 400 selected channels of neural data in untethered (wireless) data logging mode, or livestream and record up to 1152 selected channels in tethered mode via the MCU.
- Light enough for rats and larger animals; just 19g for headstage + cone
- Optimized for high throughput and social experiments
- Integrated accelerometer, gyroscope and radio receiver
