Method for Prolonged Incubation of Brain Slices
Authors:  Orsolya Kekesi and Yossi Buskila, date: 07/20/2020, view: 1548, Q&A: 0
Slices of neuronal tissue maintain a high degree of topographical and functional properties of neurons and glia and therefore are extensively used for measurements of neuronal activity at the molecular, cellular and network levels. However, the ...
