Is there any benefit for using room temperature extracellular solution?

I'm using warm solution for the ACSF by using inline heater. But I saw a comment like "All channel recording s were done at room temperature for better resolution of single channel events and better stability of the patch membrane."

Is there any benefit for using just room temperature ACSF instead of warmed one?

Thanks alot.

The membrane is much more

The membrane is much more fluid at physiological temperature and so as the paper you quoted said it is much harder to maintain a patch with a good seal than at room temperature. most electrophysiology is done at room temperatures unless the temperature is expected to influence the general findings of the study e.g. Influence drug binding
