Pharmacological Magnetic Resonance Imaging (phMRI) methods have significantly expanded the stimulation repertoire available to preclinical fMRI research, by allowing to selectively probe the activity of specific brain circuitries and neurotransmitter systems. However, the application of phMRI to animal models is constrained by a number of experimental… (More)
Multiple experimental neuroscience techniques rely on the use of general anaesthesia to minimize the discomfort associated to animal restraint and to achieve a more effective control of relevant physiological parameters. In order to minimise potential interference on brain neuronal activity, such studies are typically conducted at low anaesthetic doses.… (More)
This case required anteroposterior traction of the maxilla. Once none of the traditional methods could be used because of the lack of support in the chin and in the frontal region. Thus, we opted to use a cervical collar.
