Sleepers, awake!

Approaches to studying the brain functions of awake behaving mice Recording neuronal activity in awake behaving mice is indispensable for studying sensory processing, cognition, or decision making. During an experiment, the targeted brain region must remain stable relative to the optical or electrical probe. This task is not trivial, because an awake mouse wants to […] Read more »

Cranial preparations for in vivo imaging and electrophysiology

High-resolution tests in the brain of awake mice require careful selection of suitable cranial preparations. In vivo cranial preparations vary in terms of cranial window sizes and types of skull modifications. The choice of preparation depends on the research method (imaging or electrophysiology), brain region of interest and length of planned experiments. To help you […] Read more »
