Salt Environment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In order to develop physiologically relevant experiments that test electrical activity in and between neurons, it is necessary to closely model the physiological milieu. This chapter discusses external and internal solution components for ex vivo brain slice electrophysiology as well as brain slice cutting procedures. Additionally, this chapter includes a troubleshooting guide to assist when problems with cellular viability arise. With the assistance of this chapter, it is expected that the experimenter will have a more complete understanding of the key ingredients included in electrophysiological solutions as well as an understanding for how to efficiently locate potential problems.
