Dear Histonet,

Does anyone know of a stain I could use in vivo that would help visualize 
nerves so as to make them easier to locate?

I need to cut specific nerves in the lower abdominal area of a small 
rodent. However, I'm having difficulty finding the nerves (or all of the 
branches of the nerves). I've searched the web, but couldn't find any simple 
stains that I could use in vivo .

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!!
