Information about Cns studies with rodentPACK2 telemetry system

Published on February 14, 2014




The rodentPACK2 transmits data via radiotelemetry, offering a well-tolerated, humane alternative to tethered EEG. Direct inputs from the device to cortical and deep brain regions provide a high signal-to-noise ratio, facilitating the detection of EEG events.

The EEG analyzer module, within ecgAUTO software, allows scientist to easily:
generate FFT power spectrums with user defined frequency bands detect epilepsy seizures
differentiate between four sleep stages and calculate global sleep score.

EEG ANALYZER MODULE within ecgAUTO software Automatic software seizure detection is peformed using combined analysis of various parameters

EPILEPSY SEIZURE DETECTION within ecgAUTO software • detection is based on a user defined multicriteria condition involving 1 to 4 parameters and associated thresholds • among these parameters, some may be derived from FFT computations • analysis is performed in successive epochs of adjustable length and overlap percentage

EPILEPSY SEIZURE DETECTION within ecgAUTO software Example of detection settings: • epochs of n seconds (typically 2 to 10) • successive epochs overlap by x% (typically 0 to 50%) • epoch is a candidate if its energy, or power within some frequency range (typically 3Hz to 10hz) exceeds a threshold • seizure consists of a minimum number of consecutive candidate epochs (typically 2 to 3)

EPILEPSY SEIZURE DETECTION within ecgAUTO software Epochs of 4s, with 50% overlap. Single threshold on total epoch energy. Main data table shows epoch status and detected seizures

EPILEPSY SEIZURE DETECTION Detected seizures are visible: • in main results table • listed in a specific seizure table for review and edition

SEIZURE SUMMARY TABLE Seizure table shows: • index • time in file • duration • limits on trace • individual epochs

SEIZURE SUMMARY TABLE Seizure table other key features: • display seizures listed per time, or increasing/decreasing duration • summary per time frame (number and total duration of all seizures in successive 15mn frames), • status of criteria used to detect candidate epochs

EPILEPSY SEIZURE EDITION • manual edition of seizures limits is possible • invalid seizures can be deleted • undetected seizures can be created • valid seizures can be exported to text file

EPILEPSY SEIZURE EDITION Automatically detected limits (in green) Manual cursor to modify limits (blue & red arrows)

EPILEPSY SEIZURE EDITION Manually added seizure shown in yellow on trace and in summary table

EPILEPSY SEIZURE INVALIDATION Invalidated seizure in dotted red on trace, in pink in table

EPILEPSY SEIZURE EDITION TRACKING All manual edition actions: • shown in summary table and on data traces • are recorded in data file • can be reversed

TETHER-FREE EEG TELEMETRY rodentPACK2 wireless, low cost, head-mounted EEG for rodents • head-mounted biopotential telemetry for rodentstransmits data via radiotelemetry • humane alternative to tethered EEG • high signal to noise ratio • replaceable battery for lifetime monitoring

TETHER-FREE EEG TELEMETRY rodentPACK2 wireless, low cost, head-mounted EEG for rodents • 4 biopotential signals (EEG, ECG, EMG) each sampled at 1 kHz • 3-axis acceleration, sampled at 50Hz on each axis • global acceleration (computed from 3 axes), for activity assessment • 1 temperature, sampled at 1Hz

TETHER-FREE EEG TELEMETRY rodentPACK2 wireless, low cost, head-mounted EEG for rodents • electrodes implanted in the subject and linked to a connector permanently glued onto the skull • transmitter housing amplifiers, transmission electronics and batteries, to be coupled to the head connector prior to experiment • receiver to read transmitted data

FEATURES Radio transmission range 5m or more Transmission duration with same batteries: 150 hours (cost of batteries: 3€ ($4US) / pair) Group housing multiple animals in same cage Up to 32 animals in same room with no required shielding

ADVANTAGES Noise free, high quality EEG signal EEG electrodes are rigidly welded on the head connector which is itself solidly linked to the transmitter, therefore animal movements trigger no flexible wire movement and cause no artefact 3-axis acceleration allowing activity and posture assessment Very low recurring cost no transmitter refurbishment is ever necessary batteries cost 3€ per recording

MORE ADVANTAGES Low investment cost To record simultaneously from 4 rats, your complete hardware investment is less than 13k€ ($18kUS) Even lower investment cost By scheduling your recordings, you may further decrease cost. For example, conducting a study on 16 subjects split in 4 groups of 4, only requires a total hardware investment of 14k€ ($20kUS)

DATA TRACES from rodentPACK2 5s of data from a rat - cortex, hippocampus, EMG, total acceleration

DATA TRACES from rodentPACK2 50s of data from a rat - cortex, hippocampus, EMG, total acceleration

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Does the device alter subject behaviour? After an acclimation of under 24 hours, the rats ignore the device. They do not « touch » it nor do they try to rub it on the cage sides How long can the implanted electrodes and glued connector stay in place ? Rats equipped with this types of electrodes and connectors have been routinely used for many years in tethered systems Rats used for our tests were implanted 12 months ago and are still in good health. No special precautions were taken during this period to keep the skin-to-glue junction clean or sterile.
