NTA - Nerve Traffic Analyzer

The original NTA was fabricated in the Medical Electronics shop in the early 1980s. That facility closed in June 2010. The researchers wanted to keep the equipment in service, so contacted the Engineering Electronics Shop for help. With a 1988 model 3 and the schematic, John Kostman built another unit, a month-long project. The front and back plates, shown below, were created on the VersaLaser.

The NTA is used in medical research, not patient use.
