Welch1,2 1Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, 2Department of Pathology & Cell Biology, Columbia University Medical Center, 3Department of Psychiatry, Division of Molecular Imaging and Neuropathology, New York State Psychiatric Institute, 4EB Sciences Here, we present a protocol to isolate brain nuclei in the neonatal rat brain in conjunction with first colostrum feeding. This technique allows the study of nutrient insufficiency stress in the brain as modulated by enterocyte signaling.
Piezo High Accuracy Surgical Osteal Removal (PHASOR): A Technique for Improved Cranial Window Surgery in Mice Samuel D. Clark1, Rachel Mikofsky*1, Jacqueline Lawson*1, David Sulzer1 1Departments of Psychiatry, Neurology, & Pharmacology, Columbia University Medical Campus Piezoelectric surgery has led to improvements in human maxillofacial and dental surgery. We have developed a protocol to optimize piezoelectric surgery for cranial window surgery in mice.
