Abstract

Epoxy-insulated tungsten microelectrodes can be used once or twice in our lab before the impedance becomes too low. Dipping the electrodes in epoxy followed by curing restores their initial high impedance which is associated with good isolation of single neurons. It is a cost effective and simple procedure.
