MISSION STATEMENT

In over 700 research labs worldwide, Neuralynx, Inc. (NLX) provides The Complete Solution for electrophysiology research with powerful high density, low noise, intuitive data acquisition systems with custom integration features and devices. At the forefront of Neuralynx product development philosophy is the commitment to provide our customers with customizable hardware and software for specific experiment and lab environments, while advancing technologies in anticipation of future research trends. All Neuralynx products are backed by over 20 years of innovation, field-tested reliability, and unsurpassed customer support.

HISTORY

Neuralynx was formed in 1993 when Casey Stengel was awarded an NIH SBIR grant for the development of a high density data acquisition system. Casey had recently invented two cutting-edge products: a method for detecting, extracting and classifying single electrode and stereo-trode spike waveforms in software; and a low noise, programmable amplifier, the Lynx-8. These innovative software and hardware development projects resulted in a collaboration between Casey and Dr. Bruce McNaughton on his NASA/NIH Neurolab Space Shuttle E-100 grant.

Neurolab Space Shuttle Project

The NASA Neurolab Space Shuttle grant required the development of a Space Flight Certified 160-channel microelectrode/tetrode recording system. Additionally, NASA’s rigorous space flight requirements dictated the design of a new, high performance, low power, compact system that would withstand the intense vibrations of the launch, and then flawlessly perform in space.

Over four years, Casey lead a small team who designed, built and tested the Neurolab Space Shuttle Data Recording System. Launched on the NASA Space Shuttle Columbia in April 1998, this cutting-edge system successfully recorded high-frequency single unit “place cells” from two rats simultaneously while in orbit.

Neurolab Collage

After completing the space shuttle project, Neuralynx, Inc. was formally incorporated in Tucson, AZ. Neuralynx immediately began the sales and support of a modified Neurolab system, renamed the Cheetah 160 – Neuralynx’s first high density electrophysiology data acquisition system.
