A device for inverting the visual field of small animals is described. Binocular lenses are mounted in a lightweight, aluminum frame which, in turn, is secured to a surgically attached, dental acrylic skull cap. The construction of the device, and its usefulness when simultaneous electrophysiological recordings are desired, is described by illustrating the details of fabricating such a device for a cat.
