Abstract

We present approaches for using thin film polymeric electrode arrays for use in applications of minimally invasive neurological monitoring. The flexibility and unique surface properties of the thin-film polyimide substrate in combination with a compact device platform make them amenable to a variety of surgical implantation procedures. Using a rapid-prototyping and fabrication technique, arrays of various geometries can be fabricated within a week. In this paper we test two different approaches for deploying electrode arrays through small cranial openings.
