  • Small to large subjects (humans, monkeys, birds, rodents, felines, fish)
  • Slice and cell culture preparations (in vitro and in vivo)
  • Compatible with monopolar and bipolar stimulation paradigms


  • Motor cortex
  • Sensory cortex
  • Spinal cord
  • Peripheral nerve fibers

  • High-density multichannel
