This article discusses several of the currently used methodologies for recording from brain slices. Aspects of slice preparation as well as appropriate uses for the various slice models (i.e., thin or thick dices) are considered. The merits of extracellular and intracellular electrophysiological recording and their uses are discussed. In addition, mechanisms of neuronal circuit activation and stimulation are presented.
