New Silicon Probes Record Activity of Hundreds of Neurons Simultaneously

9 November 2017

The Neuropixels probes represent a significant advance in measurement technology and will allow for the most precise understanding yet of how large networks of nerve cells coordinate to give rise to behaviour and cognition.

Gatsby has supported this technology development project as part of a consortium of funders, academia, and private research and development institutes. The successful development phase has culminated in a publication in the journal, Nature, in November 2017.
