Abstract--This work presents the first parylene-insulated silicon
probes, which are used for neural prostheses to record high-level
cognitive neural signals. With parylene technology, our probes
have several advantages compared with the current devices. First,
instead of inorganic materials (e.g. silicon dioxide, silicon nitride),
the electrodes and conduction traces on the probes are insulated
