I thought I would post the result of a little experiment I tried
today. After reading:
I tried making some cortical slices (250um thick) in a cutting chamber
heated with a 35 degree water bath (in sucrose aCSF) from 20 day old
tissue. While the brain was so much more fluid than at 4 degrees, but
the cells were wonderfully visible and healthy looking.
Just a suggestion that I thought someone might be interested in.
