The feasibility of whole nerve recordings from the hypoglossal (HG) nerve is demonstrated in acute cats using the spiral nerve cuff electrode. A good contact between the nerve and the electrodes, provided by the spiral nerve cuff due to its self-coiling property, should improve the signal-to-noise ratio. An instrumentation amplifier with very low input noise characteristics is also utilized. The performance of the spiral cuff is studied in terms of signal-to-noise ratios and frequency characteristics. We conclude that the spiral nerve cuff electrode can reliably be used for acute recordings in laboratory environment.
