In the rodent whisker system, a key model for neural processing and behavioral choices during active sensing, whisker motion is increasingly recognized as only part of a broader motor repertoire employed by rodents during active touch. In particular, recent studies suggest whisker and head motions are tightly coordinated. However, conditions governing the(More)
The rodent whisker system is a common model for somatosensory neuroscience and sensorimotor integration. In support of ongoing efforts to assess neural stimulation approaches for future sensory prostheses, in which we deliver optogenetic stimulation to the somatosensory cortex of behaving mice, we must coordinate feedback in real time with active sensing(More)
OBJECTIVE Behavioral neuroscience studies in freely moving rodents require small, light-weight implants to facilitate neural recording and stimulation. Our goal was to develop an integrated package of 3D printed parts and assembly aids for labs to rapidly fabricate, with minimal training, an implant that combines individually positionable microelectrodes,(More)
