This core is intended to serve a broad range of investigators and to supply not only equipment but also expert technical capability for performing experiments. As the goal of this core facility is to respond flexibly to the needs of each investigator, we provide a variety of recording methods, as indicated below.

Aims
  • Carry out preliminary experiments designed to assess the utility of applying electrophysiological methods to particular projects
  • Provide consultation to PIs establishing electrophysiological approaches in their own laboratories
  • Provide basic electrophysiology training to laboratory personnel

Services
  • Whole cell current and voltage clamp
  • Single channel recording
  • Tissue slice single cell current and voltage clamp
  • Extracellular field recording
  • Biophysics and Electrophysiology consultation
