Chronic Implants Wiki

Welcome to this NC3Rs wiki on refinement of the use of chronic implants in neuroscience research using non-human primates.

Here you can read, post and edit practical information on the design, implantation and maintenance of headposts, recording chambers and other implants (see Table of Contents). The wiki also includes information on non-invasive approaches to head restraint. A discussion form will be added soon.

This is an interactive resource for the neuroscience community and we very much welcome new content (e.g. papers, protocols, hints and tips, images and comments) relevant to improving animal welfare and scientific outcomes. Registered users can add content to the wiki themselves (see our brief Guidance Document to get started), or by emailing the moderator at
