[…] the tetrodes., tetrodes were lowered in steps of 60 μm before each day of recording. the neuronal activity and the onset of pp stimulation were simultaneously recorded with acquisition equipment (open ephys) via an rhd2132 amplifier board (intan technologies). signals were monitored and recorded from 32 low-noise amplifier channels at 30 khz, band-pass filtered (0.3–7.5 khz). to achieve spike […]

[…] and recovered fully before behavioral and electrophysiological experiments., electrical signals were collected using an rhd2000 acquisition system (intan technologies) and openephys software ( evoked responses to sound were monitored daily and tetrodes were moved down after each recording session. at the first depth where sound-evoked responses were observed, we started […]

[…] great for current-source-density analyses. reference electrodes were aimed at the cerebellar white matter. for single-unit recordings from four wt and three fmr1-ko mice, an 8-tetrode flexdrive ( or a 4-tetrode custom drive was implanted under isoflurane anesthesia (2%, 1 l/min), with the electrodes aimed at the dorsal hippocampus [], and bone screws, one of which served […]
