Probeinterface: a unified framework for probe handling in neuroscience¶
probeinterface is a Python package to handle probe layout, geometry and wiring to a device for neuroscience experiments.
The package handles the following items:
probe geometry (2D or 3D layout)
probe shape (contours of the probe)
shape and size of the shank
probe wiring to the recording device
combination of several probes: global geometry + global wiring
probeinterface package also provides:
basic plotting functions with matplotlib
input/output functions to several formats (PRB, NWB, CSV, MEArec, SpikeGLX, …)
Here is a schema for the naming used in the package:
