AutoStereota

AutoStereota

  Imaging via miniature microscopes (miniscopes) is a powerful technique that has allowed for large-scale calcium-dependent neural recordings of deep brain regions previously inaccessible in freely behaving animals. This technique has become much more affordable...
Neonatal Stereotaxic Mouse Adaptor

Neonatal Stereotaxic Mouse Adaptor

 Pedro Olivetti and colleagues have designed a novel 3D printed device for stereotaxic viral delivery into the brains of neonatal mice. Postnatal development corresponds to a critical period of dynamic changes in the brain such as neural migration and synaptic growth...
RatHat: A self-targeting printable brain implant system

RatHat: A self-targeting printable brain implant system

Leila Allen and colleagues in Tim Allen’s lab at Florida International University recently developed RatHat, a self-targeting printable brain implant system. Below they describe their project: “There has not been a major change in how neuroscientists approach...
3D Printed Headstage Implant

3D Printed Headstage Implant

Richard Pinnell from Ulrich Hofmann’s lab has three publications centered around open-source and 3D printed methods for headstage implant protection and portable / waterproof DBS and EEG to pair with water maze activity. We share details on the three studies below:...
Craniobot

Craniobot

Suhasa Kodandaramaiah from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, has shared the following about Craniobot, a computer numerical controlled robot for cranial microsurgeries. The palette of tools available for neuroscientists to measure and manipulate the brain...
