Rat hippocampal slices supported on a nylon mesh laid over a polyethylene sheet in one compartment of a dual, linear flow, incubation and recording chamber. The 5-hour-old transverse slices (0.4 millimeter thick, 5 to 6 millimeters long, and 2 to 3 millimeters wide) are perfused with artificial cerebrospinal fluid and oxygenated with a humidified gas mixture of 95% oxygen and 5% carbon dioxide.
