About RP Metrix
RP Metrix Three Motor Microelectrode Headstage Systems
The RP Metrix Neural Implant System was adapted from a motorized microdrive system first used with songbirds by Michale Fee at Lucent. Michale Fee (now at the Massachuetts Institute of Technology) (
) is not associated with RP Metrix. See:
Miniature motorized microdrive and commutator system for chronic neural recording in small animals, Michale S. Fee and Anthony Leonardo,

The 12-Channel Microdrive Headstage
This basic mechanical system was extensively revised to add these improved features:
The electrodes can be mounted without bending them, so glass or quartz coated electrodes are easy to use.
Gross shuttle movement can be controlled on the implanted microdrive.
Multiple electrodes (up to four) can be carried by each shuttle.
A bit larger but more reliable micromotors.
The electronics systems both on and off the headstage have been enhanced to support 12 channels of neural recording.
