34th Microelectrode Techniques for Cell Physiology Workshop

The workshop provides intensive practical experience of a number of microelectrode, patch clamp and optical techniques applied to single cells. It is intended for postgraduate students, post-doctoral workers or established scientists wishing to apply these techniques in their research. The following core techniques are offered as 3-day experiments: Two electrode voltage clamp Patch clamp – single channel, whole cell, slice recording Single electrode voltage-clamp Dye injection Ion-selective microelectrodes Fluorescent indicators In addition there are lectures and practicals in: Electronics, microscopy, data analysis and computing, bilayer recording, flash photolysis, amperometry and capacitance measurements, multi-electrode arrays, in vivo patch clamp recording. There are 20 places. Daily lectures are given by teachers and visiting lecturers to cover the basic techniques and specialised topics. A copy of the Plymouth Microelectrode Handbook will be provided. Accommodation (for 14 nights – arrive & depart on Wednesday) is close to the laboratory and includes breakfast, lunch is provided in the lab each day and an allowance is given for an evening meal. The course fee of £1500 includes accommodation, meals and tuition. Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
