​​The Neuralynx HS-16-QC is the active electronic part of the headstage (HS) and tether system. It provides 16 channels of unity gain amplification, 2 references, ground, and 2 differential stimulation lines.   The HS-16-QC implements the revolutionary QuickClip® connection method, allowing the HS to self-align and then connect to the Electrode Interface Board (EIB) with minimal insertion force.
