A minimally invasive and reversible system for chronic recordings from multiple brain sites in macaque monkeys
We have developed a reversible system for performing simultaneous recordings from multiple brain areas of trained macaque monkeys. It consists of a near-circular halo fitted around the head of the monkey with 5-10 thin plastic or stainless steel posts that either jut against or are screwed into the skull, respectively. Both methods of implantation of the posts are easily reversible, enabling protracted recordings over many years and training the monkeys in more complex tasks. The former is more...[Show more]
