The possibility of constructing a dynamic neurogoniometer based on a rotary mechanotronic system controlled by stepper motors and a number of controlled reflectors on the galvanometric scanners is considered below. The control is performed by a PIC-controller, but there is also another low-cost construction using stepper motors control modules in a CAMAC standard. There are several designs based on a universal Fedorov stage and the apparatus for stereotaxis. The above schemes can be used both for working with the fixed histological slices and for in vivo or in situ analysis, particularly of the living brain slices. An example of application of such devices is described in this paper.
