Rat Surgery Manual

Rat Surgery Manual


The stereotaxic surgery manual provides a clear, step by step outline of the procedures involved in stereotaxic surgery with the most common laboratory animal, the rat.


A plastic binding allows this 8.5 - by 11-inch, 104 page paperback manual to lie flat.


There are over 40 full page photographs illustrating each of the steps involved in the routine implantation of a chronic intracranial electrode. Each photograph is accompanied by a facing page, giving a clear outline of the procedure illustrated.


The manual was developed in its present form as a result of the authors' experience in undergraduate laboratory teaching. It is uniquely suitable for use by individuals who have had little or no previous surgical experience.
