Tutorial02. Nov 2010 Institute: Leica Biosystems, Wetzlar, GermanyTogether with a suitable manipulator and oriented head holder, brain maps can be used to position probes at a preplanned site in the brains of several rodents. The instrument for moving a probe to a given coordinate in space – inside the brain – is a stereotaxic instrument.
Article07. Sep 2009 Institute: Leica Biosystems, Wetzlar, GermanyDr. George Paxinos paved the way for future neuroscience research by being the first to produce an accurate 3D stereotaxic atlas to guide placement of electrodes and injections in the brain of experimental animals. His atlases are now international standards.
