[…] on-chip, and sent to a field-programmable gate array (fpga) board. the data were then streamed to a linux-based host pc for data storage and real-time visualization with an adapted version of the meabench software. matlab (the mathworks) was used for data analysis and visualization during the experiments, as well as for controlling and sending commands to the chip (i.e., for electrode […]

[…] acid, 0.3 mm lead acetate, and hydrochloric acid with an adjustment of the solution ph to 1 (bakkum et al., )., to perform electrophysiology recordings, a custom-made software, adapted from meabench (wagenaar et al., ; bakkum et al., ), was installed on a desktop computer. a field-programmable gate array (fpga) and a microcontroller, embedded in a custom circuit board, were used […]

[…] conducted computationally expensive neural data analysis., one part constituted the main pc software. we modified a toolbox written by daniel wagenaar ( and let it run on the directly linked workstation in a linux operating system. this modified software, which included all the functions of the toolbox, also had new functions controlling […]

[…] larger electrode served as reference. the primary signal was amplified (gain 1100, 1–3500 hz) and sampled at 25 khz/12 bit (mea 1060-bc; multi channel systems). online spike detection was done with meabench (version 1.1.4) [] at six to eightfold root mean square noise level for spike threshold., such networks of dissociated neurons in vitro exhibit spontaneous activity characterized […]

[…] inc gain 1200×, sampling rate 25 khz, bandwidth 1 hz–10 khz). raw electrophysiological signals were filtered (300 hz–3 khz) and putative action potentials (spikes) were detected online using meabench (wagenaar et al., ) as positive or negative excursions beyond 5.0× estimated root-mean-square (rms) noise gathered for each electrode during the first 15 s of each recording. electrodes […]
