This week I got interested in automatic patch clamp. I would like to write an open source Python package to do that: contact me if you have relevant material or expertise! (eg controlling acquisition boards; video analysis; pressure control)
- Wu et al (2016) - Integration of autopatching with automated pipette and cell detection in vitro. Pretty cool stuff (code here). Unfortunate that there is no documentation, but at least it shows that automatic patch is possible.
- Perin and Markram (2016) - A Computer-assisted Multi-electrode Patch-clamp System. Only semi-automatic, but one cool idea: using a game controller to control the manipulators.
- Kolb et al (2016) - Cleaning patch-clamp pipettes for immediate reuse. Sounds amazing!
- Almog and Korngreen (2016) - Is realistic neuronal modeling realistic? Answer: no. Some good points in this review, in relation with a post I wrote some time ago and my recent review on single-compartment models.
