In order to study the morphology and function of central catecholaminergic and peptidergic neurons, it is necessary to obtain reproducible brain sections from several animals. We describe here a cutting machine for sectioning unfixed brains in frontal planes. This versatile guillotine gives a high degree of repeatability in sectioning brains of different animals in defined frontal planes.
