TetrODrive

TetrODrive

TetrODrive is a lightweight, 3D printed microdrive for electrophysiology and optophysiology. Marcel Brosch and colleagues developed and shared design files and build instructions for this device. TetrODrive can be used for in vivo tetrode recording, optical imaging,...
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...
Homecage Task Training and Mesoscale Imaging

Homecage Task Training and Mesoscale Imaging

 Timothy H Murphy and colleagues from the Kinsmen Laboratory of Neurological Research and University of BritishColumbia, have developed, shared, and validated a homecage platform for automated task training and mesoscale brain imaging for mice....
NINscope

NINscope

Andres de Groot and colleagues from the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience have created a lightweight, versatile miniscope for fluorescence imaging and optogenetic stimulation. Miniaturized fluorescent microscopes (miniscopes) are powerful tools used for the...
