Recommendations on probe implantation strategy

EUG-01

Prepare probe

  • When handling probe, only touch PCB board
  • Sterilize probe for chronic experiments
  • Impedance check
  • Perform Activation for stimulation applications (Optional)

EUG-02

Prepare animal

  • Remove dura




EUG-03

Implant Probe

  • Acute (pictured left)
  • Connect to headstage/microdrive first for better accuracy and to minimize post implant movement
  • If buckling occurs, do not force insertion. Wait and let the probe work its way into tissue (may take up to 10-15 min) - Chronic (pictured right)
  • Connect to headstage/microdrive first for better accuracy and to minimize post implant movement

EUG-04

Connect to headstage (and/or microdrive)

  • Adapters available
