Commutator’s functionality impacts the experiment’s outcome
Recent development of Alpha Omega provides a cost-effective and high-quality commutator compatible with all Intan based DAQ for recording and optical and electrical stimulation.
Recording neural activity in freely moving animals can be challenging. A major challenge is cable tangling due to animal movement, which can risk the implantation, animal behaviors and signal quality.
A slip-ring is also known as commutator can resolve the problem of cable tangling during the experiment. A slip-ring is a device which allows the transmission of power and electrical signals from a stationary to a rotating structure while preventing the tangling. The sensor can detect the torque from the cable connected to the subject and induce an opposite one to eliminate the tangling.
The AlphaComm is suitable for all rodents, due to the feature to control the sensitivity and velocity of the motor. These two features allow personal adaptation to the animal’s movement and size.
"The AlphaComm-I is ideal to use for both mice and rats in the same setup, because of The ability to control the sensitivity and velocity of the motor. Furthermore, it shortened my experiment time. Manually untangling the wires connected to the rodent, resulted in disruption every time. I don’t face this issue with the AlphaComm-I" - James M Hyman PhD Las Vegas, Nevada
AlphaComm can support up to 4 optic fibers and liquid tubes through the adjustable Optogenetics rotary joint fixer
"Compared to other motorized commutators, the AlphaComm-I is Intan tech connector compatible. Also, it can be adapted to multiple optical fibers which can be simultaneously used with Intan Headstages” - Susumu Takahashi PhD Kyoto, Japan

In the early 1990s Imad and Reem Younis, a married Arab couple from Nazareth who are graduates of Israel's premier engineering school, the Technion, began to develop proprietary tools to aid in locating the exact point in the brain to target, a problem that had been incredibly challenging. Given the obstacles the couple had to overcome – from breaking societal norms to being Arab Christians in a predominantly Jewish country – the company's rise is every bit as remarkable as its innovation.
Imad and Reem pursued neuroscience after graduating from the Technion, and in large part as a result of their interaction with Hagai Bergman and his research on the brain. In 1993, Bergman introduced the couple to Benabid, the godfather of deep brain stimulation. Eventually, the four began to collaborate. Imad got hooked because it's so rewarding. "Every time I see our devices," he says, "I am struck and say, 'Wow, this device really helps patients.'" As for Reem, helping those with Parkinson's is personal. Her father had the disease, and while he wasn't able to benefit from Alpha Omega's devices, Reem is thankful she's able to help others.
Alpha Omega devices act as a GPS inside the brain that guides doctors to the correct location for implanting a permanent electrode. Today, the devices are used in more than a hundred hospitals and 500 labs around the world. The company's sophisticated machinery is manufactured in Nazareth but marketed by its offices in the United States, Germany and Israel, as well as by representatives in China, Japan and Latin America.
The Younises attribute their success in large part to their very diverse group of engineers: Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox Christians, Muslims and Jews. "Imad and Reem Younis represent the rich diversity of the country's high-tech and start-up culture," says Israel's president, Reuven Rivlin. "They bring together all the communities in Israel with a shared vision for the future." Says Imad: "When we employ people from different cultures, we can go even farther because each one thinks differently," and this, he says, "can create innovation. We have the same father [Abraham]. We can work together to achieve common goals."
As the medical community discovers how to successfully treat various neurological diseases, Bergman and the Younises are now collaborating on what might be one of the biggest leaps in the history of deep brain stimulation. In 2015, they created a tool that places electrodes in the brain without human intervention. "You push the button and the system goes," says Bergman, who likens it to a driverless car. He dreams of creating devices that will replace humans for most surgery-related functions.
Being in the vanguard of their field is rewarding for Imad and Reem Younis. What's more rewarding, however, is knowing that their company has helped tens of thousands of people. As Reem puts it, "We return people back to life." There is no higher reward than that.

Every year the Ministry for Economy and Industry, in cooperation with the Manufacturers Association and the Israel Export Institute, holds a ceremony at the President’s Residence to present awards to industrialists based on their achievements in the previous year.
The event took place last Sunday (8/7/18) at the President’s Residence, where ten navigators of Israeli Industry were honored with leadership awards within the framework of Israel’s 70th-anniversary celebrations.
This year Nazareth-born Technion graduates Reem and Imad Younis, co-founders of Alpha Omega, a global technological leader in Neuroscience and Functional Neurosurgery equipment were between the honorees.
President Reuven Rivlin said that new immigrants, native Israelis, Jews and Arabs imbued with blessed Israeli audacity and "chutzpah" have turned tiny Israel into an industrial, technological and innovative powerhouse.
Despite their diversity, he observed, the industries are linked by a thick cord of responsibility that the industrialists took upon themselves – to create places of employment and to integrate people from all strains of society, to provide for coming generations. “Industry builds a nation,” he said, “not only through profitable companies and innovative products but first and foremost through people.”
A Committee comprises of CEOs of prominent Israeli and American companies examined dozens of nominations and selected a handful of companies that contributed in a significant and a unique way to the trade, and commercial relations between Israel and the United States decided to award Alpha Omega the 2018 Israel-America Chamber Award.
The ceremony took place on December 17th, at Havat Ronit. The Award was presented by Mr. Yaniv Garty, Chairman of the Israel-America Chamber of Commerce, and CEO of Intel Israel, in the presence of the U.S. Ambassador David M. Friedman and hundreds of guests, leaders of the business community, government and diplomatic core. Mr. Yaniv Garty mentioned the company's contribution to Israel –US Relationship "For having pioneered leading-edge technology in neuroscience research and functional neurosurgery through partnership with hundreds of doctors and medical centers in Israel and the United States; and for your deep commitmrent to social justice and leadership"
Reem & Imad Younis, co-founders of the company, accepted the award. In his speech Imad thanked the committee and highlighted the company's unique contribution to medicine and society in general:
" Alpha Omega is a truly unique company due to the fact that we work tirelessly to treat people with Neurological and mental disorders and help bring them back to lead a normal life.
Side by side to this noble mission, Alpha Omega has a strong commitment to growing magnanimous leaders and entrepreneurs who appreciate diversity as the basic value for innovation and growth, and most important the value to build a harmonized society that embraces all its members."
