Surgical implantation of chronic neural electrodes for recording single unit activity and electrocorticographic signals.

Gage GJ, Stoetzner CR, Richner T, Brodnick SK, Williams JC, Kipke DR - J Vis Exp (2012)

Bottom Line: We demonstrate the implantation procedure of both a penetrating and a surface electrode.The surgical process is described from start to finish, including detailed descriptions of each step throughout the procedure.Modifications of the described procedures are feasible for other animal models.

ABSTRACT
The success of long-term electrophysiological recordings often depends on the quality of the implantation surgery. Here we provide useful information for surgeons who are learning the process of implanting electrode systems. We demonstrate the implantation procedure of both a penetrating and a surface electrode. The surgical process is described from start to finish, including detailed descriptions of each step throughout the procedure. It should also be noted that this video guide is focused towards procedures conducted in rodent models and other small animal models. Modifications of the described procedures are feasible for other animal models.
