To describe and illustrate a simple microdissection technique for obtaining discrete areas from rat brain exposed to microwaves. The procedure relies on the coordinate system of "Pellegrino et al." for the free-hand dissection of stereotaxically defined regions of the brain.
Exposure duration: 2,5-2,8s (or 5s contradictory)
Gerling-Moore Metabostat, Model 4095
|Exposure duration||2,5-2,8s (or 5s contradictory)|
The dissection of 16 discrete regions is shown in photographic and schematic form. The technique may prove useful for examining neurochemical processes in discrete areas of the rat CNS. It may establishing the distribution of pharmacological and toxicological agents at a neuroanatomical level.
