Portable Neural Recorder
This is a project in collaboration with the Hafting-Fyhn group at the institute for biological sciences (IBV) at the biology department. The goal is to construct a neural recording device that records neural signals from a rat for several hours form brain electrodes onto a memory card. The system needs to be compact and light enough to be carried by the animal. There are two variants on how to approach this system: either 1) a fully integrated system (except for the memory card) on an integrated circuit or 2) as system built from a commercial neural amplifier and analog to digital converter chip (e.g. from Intan AS) and an FPGA that controls this chip and interfaces it with a memory card.
