Bidirectional Neural Interface
This is the first 32 channel fully implantable neural stimulation and recording system designed to provide a versatile in-vivo experimental platform for peripheral neuroscience.
The device consists of 3 main parts, as shown in the picture on the right:
- a battery backpack providing wireless transcutaneous power to the implant
- a controller that wirelessly transmits stimulation commands and receives recorded data from the implant;
- a fully implanted device which interfaces with the neural tissue.
- Highly configurable recording and stimulating setting
- Fully implantable
- Bluetooth data transfer
- Over the air firmware upgrades
- 32 Recording and stimulating channels
- Backpack with battery and wireless emitter
- Small animals in vivo neuroscience
- Studies using awake-behaving animals
- Chronic (up to 6 months)
