Welcome to the Neuropixels User Guide wiki
This website is intended as a practical user's guide to the use of Neuropixels Phase3 electrode arrays and the analysis of data they produce.
The information in the IMEC-supplied user manual supersedes anything on this website, so please reference that document first. You must obtain a copy of this manual from the IMEC svn repository (contact Tim Harris for a username and password).
The information provided here comes from users of the Neuropixels testers consortium, and should be taken as-is, and at your own risk. No one involved in the creation of this resource is responsible for your experiments working or your probes remaining intact.
Have a question that isn't answered here? Post an issue here and I'll try to respond.
