*Also known as the NeuroCap System. This system replaces the traditional U-framed stereotaxic and manipulator setups with a small 3D-printable stencil and mount fitted to the skull, and aligned in 3D brain coordinates with bregma and lambda. The system is fast, reliable, precise, and stable over weeks. All brain placements are targeted in a CAD environment for maximum accuracy.
