Dendritic patch-clamp recording

Davie, Jenny; Kole, Maarten; Letzkus, Johannes; Rancz, Ede A; Spruston, Nelson; Stuart, Gregory J; Hausser, Michael


The patch-clamp technique allows investigation of the electrical excitability of neurons and the functional properties and densities of ion channels. Most patch-clamp recordings from neurons have been made from the soma, the largest structure of individual neurons, while their dendrites, which form the majority of the surface area and receive most of the synaptic input, have been relatively neglected. This protocol describes techniques for recording from the dendrites of neurons in brain slices...[Show more]
