Microdrive Mechanism

Microdrives are a common method to isolate brain cells in freely-behaving animals, through precise positioning of electrodes. NeuroTek produces the first commercially available, modular, reusable microdrive mechanism, weighing just 0.18g. These drives are composed of aluminum and intended to fit with our stereolithography drive-body designs (soon to be released). Clock-wise turns of the drive, with the screw-driver, increments the electrodes into the brain for isolation.
