A simple and inexpensive device for double-angled positioning of electrode carriers during stereotaxic surgery is described. The device consists of a base and adjustable vertical point that is used to locate the position of final stereotaxic coordinates in space. This allows reproducible placements for deep midline brain structures that require double-angle approaches. Such placements are easily obtained with this instrument on standard and even single-carrier stereotaxic instruments.
