The Bane of Nembutal

Nembutal is an anesthetic commonly used for invasive surgeries in animals. We use Nembutal to insert microdialysis probes aimed at the suprachiasmic nucleus (see blog “The SCN” for its neuroanatomical location and function). Administering the correct dose of Nembutal is of most cirtical importance because the magnitude of difference between an underdose and an overdose is very miniscule as we have found from time to time….BAH!
