Abstract

The modular multi-channel PCB microdrive was described some years ago, since then several improvements were introduced while using these drives. Utilizing several years of experience with the original PCB microdrive we redesigned it to improve its stability and usability. The application of the printed circuit board technology and the extensive use of flexible fused silica capillaries for fabrication of the microdrive are described in detail. The improved design led to a low cost and light-weight multi-channel microdrive with outstanding modularity for extracellular field, single unit or multiunit tetrode recording up to 64/128 channels.
