UTSA NEUROSCIENCES INSTITUTE

The Neural Excitability Core is available to investigators requiring fabrication and/or live animal implantation of chronic optrodes or multichannel electrodes for neuroscience research or other applications. 

The core supports stereotaxic intra-cerebral injections, and training in injection and implantation protocols are available to investigators who wish to transfer expertise to their own laboratories.  For information or scheduling, contact the core director through the form below.
