A microelectrode is an electrode used in electrophysiology either for recording neural signals or for the electrical stimulation of nervous tissue (they were developed by Gilbert Ling and Ralph W. Gerard). Pulled glass pipettes with tip diameters of 0.5 μm or less are usually filled with 3 molar potassium chloride solution as the electrical conductor. When the tip penetrates a cell membrane the lipids in the membrane seal onto the glass, providing an excellent electrical connection between the tip and the interior of the cell, which is apparent because the microelectrode becomes electrically negative compared to the extracellular solution. There are also microelectrodes made with insulated metal wires, made from inert metals with high Young modulus such as tungsten, stainless steel, or Platinum-iridium allo and coated with glass or polymer insulator with exposed conductive tips. These are most used for recording from the external side of the cell membrane, More recent advances in lithography have produced silicon based microelectrodes.
