Systems neuroscience is being revolutionized by the ability to record the activity of large numbers of neurons simultaneously. Chronic recording with multi- electrode arrays in animal models is a critical tool for studies of learning and memory, sensory processing, motor control, emotion, and decision-making. The experimental process for gathering large amounts of neural ensemble data can be very time consuming, however, the resulting data can be incredibly rich. We present a detailed overview of the process of acquiring multichannel neural data, with a particular focus on chronic tetrode recording in rodents.
