A low-cost open-source motorized commutator for electro- and opto-physiological recordings in freely moving rodents. A low-torque motorized commutator controlled by an onboard microcontroller (XIAO SAMD21). The body and parts are 3D-printed. Different Open-MAC versions can support electrophysiology with up to 64 recording channels using the Open-Ephys / IntanTM recording systems and miniature endoscope recordings using the UCLA Miniscope v3/4, and can host a fibre for optogenetic modulation.
