About Neuralynx

Neuralynx is an industry pioneer and development leader for electrophysiology research products, specializing in customizable hardware and software data acquisition systems used to measure neural signals down to the individual nerve cell activity. Its flagship product, Cheetah, was designed, built and tested for NASA’s Neurolab Space Shuttle, and successfully recorded high-frequency single neuron “place cells” from two rats simultaneously while in orbit on Columbia in April 1998. In 2011, Neuralynx released the FDA-cleared ATLAS Neurophysiology System for use in clinical environments, improving the research of debilitating diseases. In June 2015, Neuralynx released its revolutionary Cube-64, a wireless multi-subject digital 64 channel acquisition system.

Neuralynx supports over 600 Cheetah data acquisition systems worldwide in use at universities, research institutions, and hospitals, including MIT, UCLA, Mayo Clinic, Yale and MSU. Longtime Neuralynx customers, May-Britt and Edvard Moser, were awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Medicine for their discovery of the brain’s global positioning system.

Neuralynx actively supports the educational training of neuroscience students through its participation in summer intensives, including the Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School (TENNS, Romania) and Neural Systems and Behavior (Marine Biological Laboratory, Massachusetts), providing data acquisition systems and animal interface devices.

Neuralynx also offers summer and academic year internships for undergrad and graduate students, many of whom have continued employment following graduation.

Praised for its year-round recreational opportunities (Outside, National Geographic Adventurer, Powder Magazine, Fly Rod and Reel), Bozeman combines small town charm with big city flair. Nestled in a fertile valley and surrounded by mountains with easy access to skiing, hiking, fishing, hunting and camping, Bozeman is a delightful mix of artists, photographers, filmmakers, authors, entrepreneurs and farmers/ranchers who want to work close to nature. Cultural offerings include a symphony orchestra, opera, theatre and ballet companies, art galleries and museums. One-of-a-kind shops, art galleries and restaurants, along with parades, car shows, music festivals and street fairs liven Bozeman’s historic downtown, only a short distance from Montana State University (MSU). Yellowstone National Park and Big Sky Resort are within a short drive. Great place for all ages!
