Neurologger 2B

Enhanced version with increased data rates

Neurologger 2B has been designed to record high-frequency and ultrasonic vocalizations in animals. It records:

  • Animal vocalizations, frequencies below 16.6 kHz, 4 channels
  • Animal ultrasonic vocalizations, frequencies below 100 kHz, 1 channel
  • 3-D acceleration
  • Event labels for precise synchronization with external equipment

4 channels with sampling rate up to 33.3 kHz for sound and neuronal activity recording.
Single-channel 200 kHz mode for ultrasound recording.

  Version for zebra finches, marmosets Version for bats
