Tethering lab animals with fibers and wires compromises their ”freely-moving” status for behaviour studies. Going wireless and fiberless effectively removes those limitations. Fi-Wi Optogenetically Synchronized Electrophysiology System features the opto-electric cannula with one LED and up to four recording electrodes, the fiberless and wireless headstage* for communication between the cannula and the control console, and finally the electrophysiology console that configures the stimulation and recording parameters and displays the real-time data. The recording tips of the opto-electric cannulas are custom made for specific experiments which ensure flexibility in recording and illuminating different brain areas.
This system contains all the items necessary to record synchronized electrophysiological signals with optogenetic stimulation of freely-moving animals. The Fiberless & Wireless (Fi-Wi) OSE System includes:
*A Wireless Optogenetic Headstage with Multichannel Electrophysiological Recording Capability, Gagnon-Turcotte
G, et al., Sensors 2015, 15(9), 22776-22797.
The Fiberless and Wireless Headstage records electrophysiological data form brain electrodes, controls the activation of an implanted LED and transfers all the information to the electrophysiology console.
The Fi-Wi Opto-electric Cannulas are opto-electric devices designed to be chronically implanted on the skull of an animal.For ordering, contact our sales department (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Electrophysiology Console is a FPGA based component that control bilateral wireless communication between the computer and the Fi-Wi headstage.
The Fi-Wi Headstage Charger is a device that can recharge the headstage battery in less than 20 minutes.
