Simultaneous Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Kathleen A. Williams1, Yuranny Cabral-Calderin1,3, Carsten Schmidt-Samoa1, Christiane Anne Weinrich1,2, Peter Dechent1, Melanie Wilke1,3,4 1Department of Cognitive Neurology, University Medicine Goettingen, 2Department of Neurology, University Medicine Goettingen, 3German Primate Center, Leibniz Institute for Primate Research, 4DFG Center for Nanoscale Microscopy & Molecular Physiology of the Brain (CNMPB) Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) is a promising tool for noninvasive investigation of brain oscillations, though its effects are not completely understood. This article describes a safe and reliable setup for applying tACS simultaneously with functional magnetic resonance imaging, which can increase understanding oscillatory brain function and effects of tACS.
A Pressure Injection System for Investigating the Neuropharmacology of Information Processing in Awake Behaving Macaque Monkey Cortex Vera K. Veith1, Cliodhna Quigley1, Stefan Treue1,2 1Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, German Primate Center, 2Faculty of Biology and Psychology, Goettingen University Here, we show the pressure injection of neuropharmacological substances during single-cell recording in an awake, behaving macaque monkey. This procedure allows pharmacological manipulation in the direct vicinity of a cortical recording site.
