Systems and methods for providing neural stimulation and recording on a subject using flexible complementary CMOS probes are provided. Disclosed systems can include a flexible probe adapted for insertion into a portion of a brain of the subject, the flexible probe comprising a tail portion and a head portion. The tail portion can include a plurality of electrodes configured to be coupled to the brain and a plurality of front-end amplifiers. Each of the plurality of front-end amplifiers can be configured to amplify a signal received from a corresponding electrode of the plurality of electrodes. The head portion can include one or more inductors configured to enable two-way communication with a wireless reader through a near-field inductive link.
