The Society has constantly appeared technical advances as very important and a few of the latest devel­ opments seem during this booklet. ultimately, a thrilling new improvement of neural transplantation marks the start of what could be an incredible a part of neurological surgical procedure within the future.

Dompaminergic Neuron Transplantation in the Weaver Mouse Model of Parkinson's Disease (Neuroscience Intelligence Unit)

Electromyographic recordings showed fine tremor of 3 to 5 cps in both flexor and extensor musculature of the left arm. 035I1g/ml) acids were estimated in lumbar CSF to assess monoamine metabolism. After surgery was recommended, the pro and cons of the operation were explained to the patient and relatives and written consent obtained. The surgical technique described by Madrazo et al. 8 was followed with minor variations. A right adrenalectomy was done through an anterior laparotomy and a right frontal craniotomy for frontal lobe exposure were performed simultaneously.

In our opinion, none of these electrodes fulfill the following features: easy implantation and extraction, minimal trauma and flexibility to placement over areas of cortex difficult of access, and good recording qualities. We present a multiple contact electrode for cortical recording from the subdural space which fulfill the above features. Methods and Material The electrode is made on a silicone tube, 20 cm long, 2 mm external diameter and a 1 mm wide lumen. The electric contacts are made from stainless steel rings, 2 mm long, placed 10 mm apart.
