Chronic Recording System
High channel count recordings from a freely moving animal
This system supports tethered recording from a freely moving animal. Using either a 32 or 64 channel motorized commutator you can perform high channel count recordings with either analog or digital headstages. When using digital headstages and the AC064 commutator, you can record up to 512 channels. For up to 64 channels we recommend using analog headstages for their superior recording performance.
The optional RV2 Video Tracker allows for real-time fully synchronized subject tracking, with user-specified tracking information being fed directly into the RZ2 BioAmp Processor for integration with neural data. The RV2 will also save a fully synchronized video for post-analysis. Our ACO motorized commutator supports optogenetic stimulation via a dedicated center bore; this bore can also be used to pass fluids to the subject.
