Pharmacol Biochem Behav. 1986 Jan;24(1):147-50. doi: 10.1016/0091-3057(86)90059-6.


In this report we present a detailed description for construction of a miniaturized push-pull cannula. This device can be used for in vivo perfusion of discrete brain loci in a variety of conscious, unrestrained animals for evaluation of brain neurochemistry/behavior interactions.
