The accurate implantation of microelectrodes is a significant difficulty facing many neurophysiologists. This paper reports on a new method used to promote the precise positioning of electrode implantation through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), allowing both the relevant brain structure and the MRI-visible external markers anchored on the skull (in this case rigid glass tubes with a 0.5mm internal diameter) to be displayed. By referencing these markers, the coordinates of the brain target… CONTINUE READING
