Rodent Brain Slices

Rodent brain slices

We are able to perform electrophysiological recordings on rodent acute brain slices from any brain regions, such as: 

  • Cortex 
  • Hippocampus  
  • Striatum 
  • Locus Cœruleus 
  • Thalamus 
  • Amygdala 
  • Dorsal Raphe 
  • Periaqueductal gray Matter 
  • Cerebellum 
  • Spinal Cord 
  • Substancia Nigra 
  • Dorsal Vagal Nucleus 
  • Ventral Tegmental Area
