A microelectrode positioner system and restraint apparatus are described for chronic single-unit recording in the behaving rat. This system allows recordings of single cells with a high signal-to-noise ratio, a capacity for running multiple electrode tracks in the same animal over numerous testing sessions, a capacity for remote and precise automatic driving of the microelectrode with stereotaxic accuracy, and ease in surgical implantation.
