Equipment

Neurophysiologyephys

2 Cortical electrophysiology rigs (Macaca mulatta), using the MATLAB-based PLDAPS system which integrates Plexon data acquisition, DataPixx I/O controller and video splitter, and the PsychToolbox for experimental logic and visual stimulation; 1 capable of 1024 channel acquisition

1 Cortical extracellular electrophysiology rig (Callithrix jacchus), capable of 500+ channel recordings

1 whole cell / intracellular electrophysiology rig (Callithrix jacchus),

Multiple configurations of electrode arrays for multi-neuron/multi-site recordings (Plexon U-probes/V-probes, Blackrock Utah arrays, in-house tetrodes)

Syringe pumps and apparatus for pharmacological inactivations

1 human neuromuscular electromyography rig (intramuscular and surface EMG), PLDAPS-based
