An electrode lead includes a conductive adhesive forming electrical connections between conductors and electrodes. Insulation is stripped from individual wires to expose the conductor corresponding to the electrode. The volume between the exposed conductor and an adjacent electrode surface is filled with the conductive adhesive. The extent of the conductive adhesive is limited to prevent a direct electrical connection with tissue surrounding the electrode lead, and to prevent consecutive electrodes from being electrically connected by the conductive adhesive. Further, the conductive adhesive may similarly be used to make an electrical connection between the conductors and contacts of an in-line connector.
