This paper presents an integrated neural probe that can be used as a neural signal recorder as well as a chemical stimulator. The single unit integrated probe features in-plane shanks with buried microchannels and low impedance microelectrodes. The fabricated neural probe has three 3 mm-long shanks with a 10 μm-diameter microchannel and six 30 μm × 30 μm square gold microelectrodes per shank. The measured impedance magnitude and the phase shift of the microelectrodes are 23.1 kΩ/900 μm2 and 52.9° at 1 kHz, respectively.
