microelectrode recording

microelectrode recording

A high-precision technique used in functional neurosurgery to delineate tissue that can be excised.

Method
A small electrode is guided into a target via a hole in the skull; the activity of clusters of individual neurons is then recorded to delineate the good from the bad.
