[…] operating systems and software due to technical limitations. The works discussed here predominately use two software platforms—DynaClamp (Berecki et al., , ) and the Real-Time eXperimental Interface (RTXI, www.rtxi.org; Ortega et al., ; Patel et al., ). Both platforms utilize a customized real-time Linux operating system and are freely available.In this review, we discuss how investigators have us […]


Rapid Genetic Algorithm Optimization of a Mouse Computational Model: Benefits for Anthropomorphization of Neonatal Mouse Cardiomyocytes

Front Physiol
PMCID: 3488799
PMID: 23133423

[…] illary tubes (Sutter Instrument, Novato, CA, USA) had a mean resistance of 5.2 ± 0.2 MΩ (mean ± SE) in solution, and offset potentials were measured and corrected. Recordings were performed using the Real-Time eXperiment Interface (RTXI; http://www.rtxi.org), a real-time Linux-based experimental control software system developed in our laboratory (Dorval et al., ; Bettencourt et al., ; Lin et al., […]
