Neuropixels neural probe released to the global neuroscience community

31 October 2018

Neuropixels represent a significant advance in measurement technology incorporating almost a thousand electrodes, and 384 recording channels on a single probe. Neuropixels are now commercially available and provide an unprecedented resolution for mapping brain activity.

Gatsby has supported the technology development of Neuropixels as part of a consortium of funders, academia, and private research and development institutes. Following the successful development phase reported in Nature last year, the probes are now commercially available.
