Patch Clamp Technique
The patch clamp technique is an electrophysiological technique used to measure the currents passing through ionic channels and the membrane potential of electrically active cells. This technique was first introduced by Neher and Sakmann (1976), and it is now widely used in neuroscience to characterize the electrical properties of neuronal membranes.
