High-impedance, sharp intracellular electrodes were compared with whole cell patch electrodes by recording from single spinal neurons in immobilized frog tadpoles. A range of neuron properties were examined using sharp or patch test electrodes while making simultaneous recordings with a second control patch electrode. Overall, test patch electrodes did not significantly alter the activity recorded by the control electrode, and recordings from the two electrodes were essentially identical. In… CONTINUE READING
