Good Morning Heather,

I have some  questions about how you cut frozen brains.   

What temperature are you cutting at?
How thick are your sections?
How are your samples frozen?  Flash freezing, slow freezing, iso-pentane in LN2? 

Your answers may provide clues to help you get better cryosections.
