Articles on: X-Headstage

My electrode uses a different kind of connector than what is on the X-Headstage. Can I still use the X-Headstage?

Yes. If you use connectors that are commonly used in neuroscience, chances are we already have adaptors made. The X-Headstage is designed for minimal size and thus has carefully chosen these small industrial connectors. The adaptor based approach offers the advantage of easily replacing broken pins while maintaining a smaller size than the conventional headstage design.

If you use commercial silicon or a microwire electrode, ask your probe vendor to support direct interfaces to the X-Headstage. We are happy to provide the necessary information to facilitate.
