Neurologger TSE Systems

Versatile EEG/EMG Data Logging Solution

The NeuroLogger is a versatile tool designed for use in freely moving animals across various behavioral paradigms and in the study of animal models for epilepsy and sleep disorders. With its plug on/off functionality, it serves as a data logger capable of recording 4 channels of EEG/EMG activity. What sets it apart is its straightforward and cost-effective battery replacement process, ensuring uninterrupted recording cycles.

Key Advantages:

  • Enhanced Subject Freedom: Untethered design minimizes behavioral disruption during recordings.
  • Social Recording Capabilities: Enables simultaneous recordings from multiple animals in shared environments.
  • Precise Event Marking: Synchronizes recordings with external triggers for accurate event analysis.
  • Integrated Movement Monitoring: Provides real-time feedback on animal activity levels.
  • Optional External Signal Alignment: Seamlessly integrates timing signals for enriched data context.

Main Features

Wireless data logger

Up to 90 hours uninterrupted recording

Wireless synchronization with trigger signals for precise analysis and event making
