IPSP and IPSC

Hi guys,
Me again. I was wondering if someone can explain me the difference between an IPSC and an IPSP. I know the full forms say that one is a potential and other is a conductance, but isnt a contuctance that gives rise to the potential in the first place.
 
Thanks,
Vilay

Are you doing current clamp

Are you doing current clamp or voltage clamp? Voltage clamp gives you IPSC and current clamp IPSP. IPSC is most commonly done and reported.

I switch modes. I know what

I switch modes. I know what mode gives what. I didnt frame my question aptly. What I meant to ask was that since Voltage clamp really clamps the cell, while current clamp is more dynamic and injects current into the cell, which one is more reliable in terms to estimating what really is happening in the cell
