Electrophysiology

Manager: Marianne Benoit-Marand

Electrophysiological setups include two in vivo electrophysiology rigs and one rig for brain slices intracellular recordings.

In vivo electrophysiology equipments are devoted to extracellular recording of neuronal single unit activity in anesthetized rodents. Neurons are filled with neurobiotin during recording for further identification.

Brain slices electrophysiology setup includes a vibratome that generates brain slices and an acquisition system for patch clamp recordings. This approach is used to study neuronal membrane properties as well as their synaptic responses
