Optogenetics

NeuroNexus optoelectrodes enable concurrent optogenetic stimulation and high-resolution electrophysiology.


Key Features:

  • A powerful tool – Optical fibers are laminated onto silicon probes to create an optoelectrode. Utilize a single fiber, or configure multiple fibers on a single probe (one fiber per electrode shank) to activate different opsins or target different brain areas.
  • Many options:
    • Utilize any electrode array design
    • select from multiple fiber types (and specify their termination locations on each shank) to create your ideal optoelectrode
  • Minimal tissue damage – Our smallest fiber option measures just 62.5 µm outer diameter
  • Controlled artifact – NeuroNexus optoelectrodes are engineered for minimal photoelectric artifacts
