This paper focuses on how to interface biological systems with electronics so as to implement bio-instruments to obtain the in-depth understandings about the animal behavior and human brain activities, and complex neuroprosthetic devices to treat various neurological diseases. The interdisciplinary nature of the system requires a wide range of knowledge on both biology and electronics to build such systems. A unique environment where the system should operate imposes challenging design

Fundamental building circuits including amplifiers, filters, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are addressed first and sub-systems which consists of those basic circuits are explained with emphasis on trade-offs which should be considered carefully to achieve optimal design. Several state of art systems such as integrated wireless neural recording systems and retinal prostheses are presented to explain how the fundamental knowledge and principles are used in the real applications.
