An application for acquiring neurophysiology data in Matlab.
* Acquisition can be either trial-based or continuous
* Acquisition and stimulation can be triggered by external TTL inputs
* Supports analog and digital channels
* Flexible stimulus generation: pulses, trains, sinusoids, etc
* Works with any model of patch-clamp amplifier
* Tight integration with Heka and Axon patch-clamp amplifiers
* Works with National Instruments X-series DAQ boards
* Flexible and fast multi-electrode test pulse generation
* User can extend with custom Matlab scripts for online analysis, visualization
* Custom Matlab code can be run at start/end of trials, or periodically during acquisiton
* Saves data in HDF5 format, an open standard for scientific data
* Can integrate with Vidrio Technologies ScanImage for laser-scanning microscopy
* Open source
