SpikeLog-128 is a single-board lightweight 128-channel neural logger that mounts horizontally and weighs just 4.4 grams. It amplifies and digitizes single-cell neural signals and stores all data onto a MicroSD memory card. Along with neural recording it also includes a 9-axis motion sensor. For full list of specifications see here.

SpikeLog128 for Cereport adapter
Cereport is an elastomer-based mount developed in academia and sold commercially by Blackrock. On the right is a view of the Cereport adapter assembled to the SpikeLog-128 board, and below is a view of the complete logger for use on monkeys enclosed in a strong plastic housing that holds the logger, adapter, battery and radio antenna. The memory card can be inserted and removed via a slot in the housing.
