Electrophysiology & Biophysics Core
|A recording electrode inserted into a
neuron (injected with green dye) measures electrical activity
via an amplifier
This core provides equipment for a variety of recording methods, as indicated below.
Advice is available from Co-directors of the core, but there is not a core manager, and
investigators are expected to perform experiments on their own.
- Whole cell current and voltage clamp
- Single channel recording
- Tissue slice single cell current and voltage clamp
- Extracellular field recording
equipment may be used by investigators, with minimal involvement of
facility personnel, at a rate of $15/h ($100/day). The subsidized rate for Tufts neuroscientists is $5/hr ($20/day). Please contact
Kim Maguschak for more information.
