Tracking Advances in Neural Recording

Over the last five decades, progress in neural recording techniques has allowed the number of simultaneously recorded neurons to double approximately every 7 years, mimicking Moore’s law. Following Stevenson and Kording (2011), this site is designed to keep track of these advances in electrophysiology. If you notice a missing data point email me with a reference and the number of neurons recorded.

Here is python code to generate the figure (.png, .pdf) as well as the latest data (.html, .csv).
