Open Ephys GUI

A screenshot of the Open Ephys GUI

The Open Ephys GUI is an open-source, plugin-based application for acquiring extracellular electrophysiology data. It was designed by neuroscientists to make their experiments more flexible and enjoyable. It works equally well on macOS, Linux, and Windows, although some plugins are only available for certain operating systems.

Previously, the GUI’s documentation lived on the Open Ephys wiki, but almost all of the information from the wiki has now been migrated to this site.
