Up to two Optoelectrodes and one OSC1Lite driver can be requested from MINT below. The Optoelectrodes are silicon neural probes with 12 blue microLEDs and 32 electrodes. The microLEDs can be driven with the MINT 12-channel current stimulator, OSC1Lite.

Additional Optoelectrodes may be purchased from NeuroLight Technologies by sending an email to sales@plexon.com with desired quantity and type (flexible or acute). For any questions, please send an email to contactMINT@umich.edu.

Artifact Free High-Density microLED Optoelectrodes (coming soon)

The Yoon Lab has developed artifact free high-density microLED Optoelectrodes (yet to be disseminated). Watch Professor Yoon discuss the details of these probes in his talk given at NeuroNex3.
