Closed-loop neuromodulation systems aim to treat a variety of neurological conditions by dynamically delivering and adjusting therapeutic electrical stimulation in response to a patient's neural state, recorded in real-time. Existing systems are limited by low channel counts, lack of algorithmic flexibility, and distortion of recorded signals from large, persistent stimulation artifacts. Here, we describe a device that enables new research applications requiring high-throughput data streaming…
