Our new Neuropixels probes have arrived. These are fully integrated silicon probes with over 900 active sites and the possibility to do simultaneous extracellular recordings from over 300 sites – check them out here. We hope that this will drive our investigations regarding population coding and correlated variability to the next level.
At the moment……i am preparing to put them to good use. Gathering and assembling suitable hardware for the system and building probe holders and recording hardware for our rig. I have have created some CAD designs for probe holders using FUSION 360 and ran a couple of test prints in our newly acquired 3D-Printer. Some hardware is still missing but i hope to put the probes to use in the next few months. Stay tuned for the 1st recordings… .
