Advanced Neuronal Imaging of an awake, freely moving animal
The RatCAP mechanical system enables the awake animal to move freely about a cage or skinner box while the brain is being imaged.
- The RatCAP eliminates the need for anesthesia when imaging the Rat Brain, thus eliminating the potential adverse effects anesthesia has had on neuronal studies in small animal models.
- The RatCAP opens new research opportunities in behavioral neuroscience
The RatCAP opens new research opportunities in behavioral neuroscience, as well as Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons research. The field of brain research and its pathology will be enhanced by the adaptability of the RatCap.”
