A method is described for making extracellular recordings of the spontaneous activity of single hypothalamic neurones in unanaesthetized, freely moving, lactating rats using chronically implanted micro-wire electrodes. Extracellular recordings taken from individual neurones were maintained for periods of between 1 and 12 days. These records were not affected by any normal movement of the animal. As several micro-wires were implanted into each animal it was possible to make simultaneous… CONTINUE READING
