We present the design, fabrication, characterization and neural recordings with flexible microfabricated neural interfaces that are implanted into developing insect sensory organs. During metamorphosis, the neuronal processes extending from the insect sensory organ grow through the implant resulting in an adult insect with a stable and fused organ-interface assembly. We present neural recordings from adult eyes and antennas taken with these interfaces. We believe this work will have impact as a method for obtaining stable chronic insect sensory recordings.
