MRI Compatible Microdrive

MRI Compatible Microdrive

The use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in conjunction with local electrical microstimulation (EM) is a powerful tool for investigating brain network connectivity. This method requires MRI compatible devices that can precisely position electrodes...
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...
OpenVape

OpenVape

In a recent paper published in eNeuro, Jude Frie and colleagues from Ontario, Canada present  a new, open-source, low-cost, and versatile e-cigarette vapor exposure device: OpenVape.  Additionally, the authors also tested the OpenVape device by performing a behavioral...
