Connecting a telemetry transmitter to the animal

A telemetry transmitter and batteries are placed in the container and attached to the cable. Movement of the mouse is not substantially reduced even if the total weight of the container exceeds an ounce (28 g).

The transmitter can be powered by a battery located outside of the cage by connecting it via a slip ring.

The container-cable assembly is attached to the animal and then hanged on the aluminum rail of the cage insert, so that the container can slide and rotate, allowing maximum mobility of the animal.
