Surgery Tip

Our new combination cannula and depth electrode for rats and mice (8425-RFF, 8425-M) is designed for simple implantation and close placement of the optogenetic stimulus and depth electrode.  During implantation, make sure to enlarge the skull hole sufficiently to accommodate the additional diameter added by the depth electrode. We recommend a hole diameter of at least 1.25 mm. The 8425-RFF rat depth electrode plus cannula is constructed using a friction-fit guide cannula that can be placed within 3 mm of our other friction fit cannulas.
