ref: Wester-2009.04 tags: parylene flexible electrode gold Georgia date: 01-29-2013 03:14 gmt revision:4 [3] [2] [1] [0] [head]

PMID-19255461[0] Development and characterization of in vivo flexible electrodes compatible with large tissue displacements.

  • Device was 100um wide and 25um thick, and was stiff enough to enter directly.
    • carefully calibrated this stiffness -- good! we should do the same.
  • parylene composition.
  • brain tissue force on the order of 2mN.
  • No histology.
  • [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=LaPlaca%20MC[Author]&cauthor=true&cauthor_uid=19255461 laPlaca] has a good number of publications on shear stress in brain tissue.

IEEE-6197244 (pdf) A PDMS-Based Integrated Stretchable Microelectrode Array (isMEA) for Neural and Muscular Surface Interfacing

  • Targeted at e.g. ECoG; in this paper, they look at cat muscle (epimyscial recording).
  • MEA is directly fabricated with a stretchable substrate, such as a thin PCB or ASIC, through via bonding for built-in packaging.

IEEE-906517 (pdf) Flexible microelectrode arrays with integrated insertion devices

  • 2001 MEMS Conference.
  • FMA = flexible microelectrode arrays.
  • Both for nerves (pass-through needle) and cortex (removeable needle).
    • Primarily tested in tissue proxies.
  • Anticipated the utility of photolithography for patterning the electrodes + rigid insertion devices.
  • The elastic modulus of polymers like polymide are two orders of magnitude less than metals, but still six orders of magnitude higher than brain tissue (46kPa).
  • Pass-through needle very similar to the threaded wire idea.
  • removable needle simply stops the thread & drives the needle a bit further to break the attachment site.
    • Did not test removable needle technique (?)
  • Defined electroplating with a thick photoresist mask, as Michel says.
  • Tested FMAs with movement and acceleration vs. rigid arrays. FMAs faired much better, of course!

PMID-17271195[0] Models of stimulation artifacts applied to integrated circuit design.

  • for MEAs.
  • Idea: develop a model of the stimulation artifact so they can optimize removal in SPICE.
  • reference documents that say that biphasic stimulation + active artifact suppression (by discharging the electrodes after stimulation, [1]) are acknowledged means of reducing stimulus artifact.
  • artifact appears to be 1ms saturating, 6ms non-saturating pulse.
  • a little light on details.
