Advancing Neuroscience with High-density, High-channel Recording: In Booth Presentations

Each day at SfN, a featured probe poster will be on display at our booth #1836. Don't miss the chance to discuss our latest innovations.

Join Andrew Klein and Fabio Boi

High-density, high-channel recording with SiNAPS probes and OmniPlex

Join us in the Plexon booth at 2pm on Sunday for a joint presentation with Fabio Boi from Corticale SRL and Andrew Klein from Plexon Inc. Fabio will showcase the latest in SiNAPS probe technology and Andrew will discuss how the  OmniPlex system enables users to record from all channels of a SiNAPS probe and utilize powerful referencing, thresholding, culling, and spike sorting features only available from Plexon Inc.

A Mesoscopic Electrophysiology Platform (MePhys) to Measure the Functional Connectome of the Non-human Primate Brain

Key aspects of brain function can only be understood by recording from the entire brain in parallel, rather than parts of it in sequence. Electrophysiology has excellent temporal resolution, but either limited coverage or limited spatial resolution. Stop by the Plexon booth to hear about the development of the first electrophysiological mesoscope that has the volume of an entire hemisphere as its field of view. Tobias Teichert from the University of Pittsburgh, will be in the booth at 3pm on Sunday Nov 12th to present this exciting data and answer questions.

Recording with Multiple Probes

  • Traditional probes are designed with a straight shaft and connector distal from the tip and recording sites.
  • For some labs, the orientation of the probe connector and the thickness of the headstage prevent probes from being placed close enough together to target the brain regions of interest.

Stimulation and Recording with S-Probes

  • Many labs want to stimulate (either electrically or optically) through sites adjacent to recording sites at the same time on the same probe.
  • For this design, the lab plans to record and stimulate (100µA of current) within the same experimental session.
  • The lab requested two fluid lines adjacent to the recording sites.

Pressure Injections and Neural Recording Using the S-Probe 

•Standard probes are manufactured with single electrode configuration.
•Up to 4 fluid channels can be added to a probe to allow for fluid delivery adjacent to the recording sites.
•Probes can be manufactured with stereotrode or tetrode configuration.
•The lab was concerned that the pressure of the injected solution was pushing tissue away from the recording sites.
