Identify the location of different brain structures and guide the placement of electrodes or other instruments during experimental procedures.
The matrix consists of a series of coordinates that correspond to specific locations in the brain, and it can be used to identify the location of different brain structures during experimental procedures.
Study of the brain
The matrix is used to guide the insertion of electrodes or other instruments into specific locations in the brain, allowing researchers to study the functions of different brain regions or to manipulate brain activity in specific ways.
Rodent brain matrices are often used in conjunction with stereotaxic instruments, which are tools used to precisely locate and manipulate specific areas of the brain in living animals.
