mi·cro·e·lec·trode

(mī'krō-ē-lek'trōd),
An electrode of very fine caliber consisting usually of a fine wire or a glass tube of capillary diameter (10 mcm-1 mm) drawn to a fine point and filled with saline or a metal such as gallium or indium (while melted); used in physiologic experiments to stimulate or to record action currents of extracellular or intracellular origin.

microelectrode

(mī′krō-ĭ-lĕk′trōd′)
n.
A very small electrode, often used to study electrical characteristics of living cells and tissues.

microelectrode

[mī′krō·ilek′trōd]
an electrode with a very small tip for use in brain studies. The device can be inserted without membrane damage into nervous tissue to record the bioelectrical activity of a simple neuron.

microelectrode

An electrode made from a hairlike filament capable of penetrating a single cell (e.g., a neuron), which can deliver or sense minute electric currents.
