Congratulations to the team and our colleagues at IEBL UCSD and the Dayeh lab for a new publication on microSEEG electrodes!

Congratulations to everyone on the article, “Flexible, scalable, high channel count stereo-electrode for recording in the human brain”. In this multi-year journey to develop novel, scalable thin film penetrating depth electrodes to advance the field by leaps and bounds, the Dayeh lab and the IEBL lab at UCSD has worked with the Cash lab along with the Pezaris, Fried, Williams, and Richardson labs of Thier 4 at MGH to test whether we could capture biologically relevant neural activity using these new devices. In this article in Nature Communications, we show the unique capabilities of these devices including recording brain activity in four species in both acute and chronic recording settings. We hope this advance will move forward our ability to record brain activity at high resolution particularly in the clinical setting.
