Recent advances in the field of neural prosthetics have demonstrated the thought control of a computer cursor. This capability relies primarily on electrode array surgically implanted into the brain as an acquisition source of neural activity. Various technologies have been developed for signal extraction; however most suffer from either fragile electrode shanks and bulky cables or inefficient use of surgical site areas. Here we present a design and initial testing results from high electrode density, silicon based arrays system with an integrated parylene cable. The greatly reduced flexible rigidity of the parylene cable is believed to relief possible mechanical damages due to relative motion between a brain and its skull.
