Expert LTP, LTD, and Whole-Cell Patch Clamp Services
PsychoGenics offers expert ex vivo electrophysiology services, enabling the precise measurement of neuronal activity in acutely prepared brain slices. Through the examination of synaptic currents and membrane potentials, you gain valuable insights into the mechanisms of your drug’s action.
Directly visualizing the structure of the brain slice enables precise placement of stimulation and recording electrodes near or within the desired cells. Furthermore, the absence of the blood-brain barrier in this ex vivo setup facilitates direct access to compounds, providing a detailed picture of how your drug works.
