About Neuropixels

Neuropixels probes were developed through an international collaboration funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)Wellcome TrustGatsby Charitable Foundation and Allen Institute for Brain Science.

This Website

This website serves as the primary distribution channel for the Neuropixels probe and control system. The website also provides extensive documentation and support material including links to external resources necessary to install, operate and use the probes and also to develop custom application software and system hardware.

It is strongly advised to study the manuals and to attend one of the regularly organised user workshops or training courses prior to using the probes. We also encourage users to reach out to experienced users and take advantage of the growing knowledge base shared on various online collaboration platforms.
