Congratulations to the Society for Neuroscience 2022 Giveaway winners! Thank you to everyone who visited us at SFN this year! Today's 5 winners will each receive one of the below items: NEXTY Single channel Pippetter, 100-1000ul, Slim Type NEXTY Single Channel...
Touch Panel Operant System for Neurological Deficit Research
Both visual discrimination (VD) and reversal learning (RL) in neurological studies are very important to study animals’ cognitive abilities.
Use head-fixation to identify neurons associated with voluntary movements
Head-fixation is widely used in the field of behavioral neuroscience in awake behaving animals to better understand the cortical involvement in animal behaviors.
Accurately monitor reward-oriented licking
Identifying efficient robust methods to monitor licking behavior in rodents is key to understanding the role of reward-oriented dopaminergic neural pathways in animal behavior.
Using the ELG-2 Wireless EEG system to examine the role of the claustrum in cortical slow-wave activity
During sleep and quiet wakeful states, the neocortex exhibits large-scale slow-wave (SW) activity. The synchronous generation of the neocortical SWs implies the existence of an as-yet unknown spatiotemporal coordinating mechanism with long-range afferents driving...
Cyber Monday Giveaway Winner Announcement
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Cyber Monday sale and entered our giveaway that ran from November 29 through December 10. Watch the video to find out if you are the winner.
Scarce Microdialysis Goods May Delay Neuroscience Research
Even with thorough planning, global supply chain issues have caused delays in nearly every industry, including lab supplies. “Most often Amuza is able to ship microdialysis probes with one or two days.”
Successful fiber photometry in mazes and other complex environments
Fiber photometry is most commonly used to monitor activity and chemical signaling at a specific location in the brains of freely moving animals.
5 Tips for Successful EEG and EMG Recording in Freely Moving Mice and Rats
Tethers are often the weak link in EEG experiments. In this article, we describe five tips on how to successfully record EEG and EMG in freely moving mice and rats.
2021 Optimizations to Wireless Fiber Photometry and Wireless Optogenetics Products, Based on Customer Feedback
In 2021, we made many new upgrades, options, and improvements for our wireless fiber photometry and wireless optogenetics products.
Very Fast CRISPR (vfCRISPR) synchronizes and improves the accuracy of CRISPR cleavage using 365 nm light as a trigger.
The system requires: a guide RNA (gRNA) to target a specific DNA sequence, and a CRISPR-associated endonuclease (Cas9 protein) to perform the actual cleavage.
Microdialysis vs Fiber Photometry for Neurotransmitters
Microdialysis and Fiber Photometry are both powerful techniques for monitoring the concentrations of neurotransmitters in vivo, but each technique has very different advantages. Amuza is the only company that provides both types.
