Science Updates

Viejo and Peyrache took advantage of NeuroNexus 8-shank polytrodes to sample from multiple sub-nuclei in the anterior thalamus in awake behaving mice. They were able to identify head direction (HD) cells in the AD nucleus and characterize firing rates and burstiness of HD and non-HD cells. Results demonstrated that AD HD cells specifically increase gain and coherence during hippocampal sharp wave ripples.

Congratulations to the Colonnese lab for their new publication in #eNeuro. They used Poly2 probes for dense acute recordings in mouse pup V1 to demonstrate that retinal input does not govern developmental increases in cortical activity. Their recordings were done with the NeuroNexus SmartBox system. Learn more about the updated system here.

Using NeuroNexus linear arrays, dense sampling through the auditory cortex enabled computation of bipolar derivation LFPs for supragranular and infragranular layers. LFPs were also sampled across the posterior auditory field within the ectosylvian sulcus. This study is a great example of using NeuroNexus probes to target hard-to-reach areas.

Yu et al. studied the effects of transcranial focused ultrasound modulation by opto-tagging and recording from different neuron types using NeuroNexus opto-electrodes and standard probes. Neural data was recorded using the NeuroNexus SmartBox.

Nelson Totah et al. recently published their paper studying prefrontal cortical control of the locus coeruleus. They use two different NeuroNexus 32-channel probe designs to record single units in anesthetized rats.

Hot off the presses! We're excited about this new publication featuring a one-of-a-kind custom NeuroNexus silicon microelectrode. This probe has two different shank lengths, as well as a combination of recording and simulation electrode sites.

This collaboration between the Dietmar Schmitz and Gyorgy Buzsaki labs utilized 32-channel and 256-channel multi-shank NeuroNexus probes and optoelectrodes. The geometry of the probes enabled positioning shanks in the mouse hippocampus/dentate gyrus, subiculum and granular retrosplenial cortex simultaneously. Through acute electrophysiology and optogenetic manipulation, this team defined a pathway by which sharp wave ripples communicate from the hippocampus to cortex.

This publication in eNeuro provides highlights valuable data obtained from acute recordings with standard NeuroNexus catalog probes in macaque visual cortices. The researchers covered the skull with acrylic resin, performed a craniotomy through the resin, then inserted silicon probes through a slit in the dura. Re-use of the probes and multiple recordings in the same animals were achieved with this method. Original recordings were published here. The present study’s computational results suggest that saliency of visual stimuli are represented in primary visual cortex.

Neuronexus A2x16-10mm-150-500-177-A32, 2-shank laminar probes were used to record the control frequency tuning profile of the guinea pig inferior colliculus. The animals were then acutely deafened and probe recordings were used to characterize inferior colliculus activity during use of cochlear implants with different stimulation profiles. This study in Hearing Research points to a solution for reducing channel interactions in cochlear implants, with the potential to improve speech detection for cochlear implant users.

Koch et al. from John Wolf’s Lab published their study on functional status of hippocampal neurons after traumatic brain injury (TBI). A NeuroNexus 32-channel probe (A1X32-Poly2-5mm-50s-177-H32) was used for laminar recording in CA1 in a rat TBI model. They reported that hippocampal CA1 single-unit activity post-TBI can maintain a normal firing rate despite significantly reduced, layer-specific loss of input. However, maintaining normal synchronization to the dominant oscillations within the hippocampus is impaired.

Lipinski et al. published their study on adult neuron identity recently! A NeuroNexus 32-channel linear array with 50um site spacing (approx 1.5mm recording span) was used to record simultaneously from the CA1 and dentate gyrus in mutant mice with an inducible genetic mutation to delete two transcriptional co-activators. Across acute multi-channel recordings, drops in activity were observed within 2 weeks of genetic ablation.
