A screw microdrive for adjustable chronic unit recording in monkeys

J Neurosci Methods. 1998 Jun 1;81(1-2):185-8. doi: 10.1016/s0165-0270(98)00036-3.


A screw microdrive is described that attaches to the grid system used for recording single neurons from brains of awake behaving monkeys. Multiple screwdrives can be mounted on a grid over a single cranial opening. This method allows many electrodes to be implanted chronically in the brain and adjusted as needed to maintain isolation. rights reserved.
