CerePlex™ M
CerePlex™ M

The CerePlex™ M is a small and lightweight digital headstage that provides an extremely low-noise, 7-wire, all-digital link from up to 96 neural microelectrodes to the Cerebus™ data acquisition system. The onboard digitization circuitry of the CerePlex™ eliminates artifacts due to headstage cable motion and environmental noise pickup. Its multiplexed output allows the researcher to use a single lightweight cable instead of multiple bulky cables and removes the need for an expensive motorized commutator when recording from freely behaving small animals such as rats, mice and birds.

  • Onboard digitization
  • Multiplexed,7-wire output for 32, 64, or 96 electrodes
  • Miniature and light weight
  • Eliminates artifacts from cable motion and environmental noise
  • Spike and field potential recording
