Abstract

In this paper, we compared the signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) of nerve recordings obtained with an open cuff (a 270° cylinder) and a full cylindrical electrode (simulated by lifting the open electrode outside the solution) using an in vitro set-up. The thermal noise was considered as the main source of noise. The SNR with the open cuff was only 52±7% (n = 3) less than that of a full cylindrical electrode, although the reduction in signal amplitude was 3.5±0.6 times. One may prefer to use the open cuff geometry to reduce the risk of nerve insult in certain nerve recording applications where this loss in SNR is acceptable.
