Data Acquisition

Highly configurable and easy to use data acquisition system.

Cerebus - Animal


The Cerebus system is a sophisticated multichannel system for recording and analyzing animal brain and peripheral-nerve electrical activity from up to 256 electrodes. The system captures, processes, and analyzes (in real time) action potentials (spikes), field potentials, and other physiological signals as well as experiment state events. The front-end is compatible with individual stiff-wire electrodes, microelectrode and microwire arrays, planar silicon probes, subdural ECoG grids, and epidural and scalp EEG electrodes. Flexible I/O options facilitate interfacing to 3rd-party equipment such as behavior, stimulus, and video systems.

  • Highly configurable and easy to use data acquisition system
  • Easily scalable from 8 to 256 channels of action potentials and field potentials (with other experimental data) in real time
  • Flexible digital architecture for adaptive filtering and 3D spike sorting
