A CYLINDRICAL MICROELECTRODE ARRAY FOR NEURAL STIMULATION AND RECORDING

A CYLINDRICAL MICROELECTRODE ARRAY FOR NEURAL STIMULATION AND RECORDING

This multilayer cylindrical structure has integrated sections including electrodes exposed through electrically insulating layers, a connector section with conductive bond pads for interfacing with external electronics, and a cable section with conductive traces encapsulated in electrically insulating layers and which connect the electrodes and their corresponding bond pads.

This cylindrical shape of the probe is advantageous as it allows for directed neural stimulation and recording. As advances are made in the scope of what neuromodulation can do, the ability to precisely target tissue becomes paramount. This probe offers a unique precision through directed targeting, with a minimally invasive footprint.
