Methods in Neuroscience
A series of web pages that reviews some methods/techniques commonly
used in neuroscience research. Most pages show step by step photos and are accompanied by
short videos (in "windows media" format). The topics covered are:
Goldfish Mauthner Cell; Crayfish Neuromuscular Junction; in vitro Slice Preparation;
Squid Giant Synapse; Manduca sexta Segmental Ganglion; Scallop (Pecten Irradiens) Retina;
Whole Cell Patch Clamp Recording; Drosophila Neuromuscular Junction; Single Channel Recording;
Two Microelectrode Voltage Clamp Recording.
