MRI In Research

MRI tests have many applications with research animals, including stroke, cancer and drug efficacy. It allows for researchers to study small cellular changes and, unlike more traditional models, MRI allows for the study of disease progression without the need to sacrifice the animal. This suggests there is a need for fewer animals, driving down costs and allowing more research to be done....continue

Addiction and the Animal Model

Researchers have long been using animal models, namely rats, mice and primates, to mimic addiction models in humans. Rodents and primates suffer addiction and brain changes similar to human models, and so, can be suitable replacements for them in study. Examples of drugs often chosen for animal models include nicotine, alcohol, cocaine and heroin. Addiction studies, accomplished through self-administration, is a form of operant conditioning. Animals are placed inside an operant chamber where they are trained to press a lever for ...continue

Variations of Guide Cannulae

Neuroscience researchers use guide cannulae in animals to study regions of interest in the brain. A guide cannula is a hollow tube that is implanted into an animal, to allow for fluid or drug infusion. Generally, guide cannulae are cut to a specific length and then carefully placed surgically using a stereotaxic....continue

The Brain Atlas and Stereotaxic

brain atlas is a roadmap to basic brain structures. The first rat brain atlas, The Rat Brain Coordinates in Stereotaxic, was published by Paxinos and Watson in 1982. The book is currently in itís 7th edition (2014) and is considered one of the most trusted resources of neuroscience researchers. An atlas is comprised of photos or diagrams of brain slices done at set intervals. This interval ranges anywhere between 100 - 200 Micrometre in thickness ...continue
