I have just started doing multi-cell patch clamp recordings in slices with no former patch experience. I am currently looking to get a better theoretical understanding of the technique and more practical training in different applications of patch clamping (different systems, cell attached/whole cell, in combination with optogenetics/extracellular stimulation etc).
Do you know of any courses which cover some or all of these topics that are possible to attend in 2014?
Or is it better for me to contact individual labs and ask to visit? (if so, any suggestions?)
Feedback is much appreciated, thanks!
