NeuroLog System Application Notes
Please note that as well as the modules indicated below, each application will require a NeuroLog Case & Power Supply Unit (NL900D or NL905) and possibly some interconnection and output cables or cable adaptors. Just click on the application note of interest to download a PDF file which details the modules required and how they are set up and interconnected.
At the heart of the NeuroLog system range are the many possible amplification modules, which can be used to make intracellular or extracellular microelectrode recordings; multi-channel EMG, EEG or ECG recordings or recordings from strain gauges or pressure transducers.
The NL100RK – Record from and then electrically lesion your recording site without moving or disconnecting the electrode.
Modules Used: NL100AK (x2 or more)
Triggering & Pulse Generation
Here are just some ways that NeuroLog modules can be utilized to produce complex pulse protocols with full control over the timing characteristics. These pulses can be used to trigger other equipment, including electrical stimulators. Other pulse generation protocols featuring stimulation are given in the Electrical Stimulation Section.
A set number of bursts of pulses with control of burst duration/repetition & output frequency/width.
A versatile stimulus timing protocol: Set number of trains; set number of bursts in a train and set number of pulses in a burst.
Signal Conditioning Filtering & Processing
Single & multi-channel filters and signal conditioning units can be used to remove unwanted components/frequencies from biological signals prior to acquisition. In addition, some of the NeuroLog modules can be used to carry out simple processing tasks.
The NeuroLog System includes a battery powered constant current stimulus isolator (NL800A) which can be controlled by various modules within the range. In addition, the output pulses produced by the NeuroLog System can be used to trigger most laboratory stimulators.
