Evolocus LLC provides equipment for biomedical research, animal behavior and electrophysiology. The main part of the products is represented by wireless fully autonomous animal attached system for recording electrophysiological data in freely-moving animals. These devices are called Neurologgers.

Three generations of Neurologgers are actively supported. The set of devices covers a very broad area of research. Acquired and stored data comprises multi-channel neuronal activity, vocalization (including ultrasonic), LFPs, long-lasting EEG, ECG, EOG and EMG.

The distinctive feature of the devices is their extremely small size and weight (about 1-2 g). This allows researchers to mount loggers directly at the head of a laboratory mouse (25 g body weight), or at the back of a zebra finch (small laboratory songbird with 14 g body weight). It also fits perfectly to larger animals such as rats and monkeys.

The built-in 3-D accelerometer, 3-D gyroscope and 3-D magnetic compass can help to track animal behavior. Precise synchronization of the loggers with the external equipment is provided by Neurologger Synchronizer via the infrared link. The latest versions are complemented with Bluetooth interface for remote configuring and data access.

Local data logging is an excellent alternative to classical radio-telemetry. Having smaller power consumption, it outperforms it in signal quality: no data losses and signal quality degradation during transmission, no penetration of the artifacts from the radio transmitter to high-impedance neuronal electrodes.
