Now, in simulation mode, you can indicate brain atlas start and ending points to determine an insertion path. VCS will calculate the MPM position attributes (polar angle, pitch angle, arm height and length) to achieve that trajectory. Then you can move this probe and others in simulation mode to be sure there are no collisions.
VCS will save these position settings. Once you have configured the physical MPM system according to the recommended settings (polar angle, pitch angle, arm height and length), and calibrate the probe to the physical Bregma and Lambda on the test animal, you are ready to start the experiment.
The result is much less time setting up, and much more time for your experiment!
