Abstract

A recording microelectrode with a related system and method of use is provided. The microelectrode has a curved tip that records tissue within a circumferential proximity to a target site in the brain. The microelectrode is manipulated with handle guided using a depth control device. The microelectrode system is a combination of the recording microelectrode and a protective sheath for use in the lumen of an insertion cannula of a stereotactic frame or similar device.
