A new planar multielectrode array: recording from a rat auditory cortex



A new planar multielectrode array: recording from a rat auditory cortex



Journal of Neural Engineering 3(4): 293-298



In the study of the spatiotemporal properties of the cortex, a demand often arises for recording local field evoked potentials (LFEP) and neural spikes from a quantity of points at close range from each other. In such a situation a device composed of a lot of electrodes assembled in a single bunch would be suitable. Such circumstances gave us the impetus to create the device described in this paper, namely a new planar electrode array for in vivo multisite extracellular recording. The device is made of plastic and includes platinum electrodes 50 microm in diameter. The array of 64 incorporated microelectrodes is placed on the surface of the cortex of anesthetized rats. Recordings could be made through all electrodes for more than 1 h without damage to the cortex. The inter-polar distance is approximately 100 microm so that each individual electrode can record activity from a separate population of neurons near the cortical surface. The recording system described here is highly useful for visualizing spatiotemporal structure of the cortical activities and for imaging dynamic neuronal assemblies.
