A cost-effective, AC-coupled differential headstage for recording extracellular neuronal signals. It is ideally suited to teaching applications for advanced undergraduate neurophysiology.

Included with the Headstage:

  • Stainless steel detachable electrode (1)
  • Silver detachable electrode (1)
  • Metal microelectrode male connectors (6)

Accessories purchased separately:


Key Features

  • High impedance and a gain of 100x with a 100 Hz high pass filter and 5000 Hz low pass filter.
  • Cable shielding that is directly connected to the casing, limiting the need for additional shielding at the input terminals.
  • 3 input sockets (2 recording, 1 ground).
  • Supplied with 6 metal microelectrode male connectors.
  • Supplied with 2 pre-configured detachable electrode tips (1 stainless steel, 1 silver).
