Chronic cranial window surgery is a critical procedure for
imaging in neuroscience. Here, we describe our surgical protocol with several subtle improvements that increase the success rate significantly. The window allows high-quality imaging in head-fixed behaving mice within the first week after the surgical procedure and remains clear for months. We used this procedure to prepare mice for intrinsic signal imaging and two-photon imaging of layer 6 neurons in v…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
