A technique is described for sectioning midline telencephalic and brain stem structures in rabbits using a pivoting blade stereotaxically mounted in a swivel carrier. By varying site of entry, height of pivot point above the dura, degree of arc and depth of insertion, a wide variety of sections can be made. Experiments conducted on 12 rabbits established the efficacy of the procedure for severing telencephalic and brain stem commissures and decussations.
