Tethered "Stimulate & Record" Headstages
DataWave offers specialized tethered headstages that allow you to both stimulate and record on the same channel.   These specialized headstages from A-M Systems are tailored to interface with the specific A-M Systems amplifiers.

Although the size of these headstages limit applications to a stationary animal, they still provide a powerful approach for stimulating at the exact same location from where you are recording.   There are two types of headstages available -- one for the AM-1800 and one for the AM-3600.

Single Channel for the AM-1800
The headstage for the AM-1800 is small and convenient. It comes with the cabling and proper connectors for the amplifier already attached.
NOTE: This headstage can also be used with a "modified" AM-1700, however it will limited to record only.

16 Channel for the AM-3600
This headstage enables simultaneous stimulation and recording on any combination (or all) of the 16 channels when paired with the AM-3600 amplifier.   This headstage uses fast switching relays (microsecond switching times, not milliseconds!) to control signal paths between stimulating and recording modes.

The standard interface connection on the electrode side is an Omnetics nanominiature connector, however adapters for other electrode configurations may be available.   Additionally, the headstage comes with cabling and the proper output connectors for the AM-3600 amplifier.
Single Channel Stimulate & Record Headstage for the AM-1800
- Simple and easy-to use
- Already has the correct cabling and connectors on the headstage output side
- Can also be used as a record only headstage with a "modified" AM-1700
16 Channel Stimulate & Record Headstage for the AM-3600
- Stimulate and record on any combination (or all) of the 16 channels
- Fast switching times (microsecond switching times, not milliseconds!)
- Standard Omnetics connector on the electrode side of the headstage (other connectors optional)
- Already has the correct cabling and connectors on the headstage output side
