Abstract: Modern microelectronics is transforming electrophysiology research tools and results. Most prominent in this space are the Neuropixels probes (now more than 8000 probes in 7500+ labs) and INTAN multiplexer chips, the core of nearly every other recording system. This talk will touch the history of ephys, show the origin of Neuropixels and other technologies, discuss the data digestion logjam this new capacity has generated, and discuss the various new probes (for primates and, even smaller probes from NIH funded projects) emerging from this effort.
