1. Head-Fixation in Neuroscience Research Head-fixation is widely used in the field of behavioral neuroscience in awake behaving animals to better understand the cortical involvement in animal behaviors. Our understanding of topics such as associative learning,...
Identifying efficient robust methods to monitor licking behavior in rodents is key tounderstanding the role of reward-oriented dopaminergic neural pathways in animal behavior. Bymonitoring licking behavior, researchers can better understand how rodents gauge the...
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...
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.
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.”
Fiber photometry is most commonly used to monitor activity and chemical signaling at a specific location in the brains of freely moving animals.
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 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.
We show you how the Free Maze is quite easy to configure. The orientation and position can be easily changed to give you different designs.
We share information about sensors that should be compatible with fiber photometry when using excitation with blue light and measuring green fluorescence.
