A method is described for the rapid dissection of seventeen areas of the rat brain. Regions from fresh unfrozen brain tissue are dissected from coronal brain slices obtained with use of a cutting block. This method is applicable to pharmacological and behavioral studies which require the dissection of numerous brains during short time intervals. © 1980, All rights reserved.
