Single Channel Recording is the possibly the single most useful text for the patch-clamp novice, and the text continues to be a fundamental resource for veterans. Sakmann and Neher, inventors of the technique, have compiled a book to give both theoretical background and practical advice regarding both experimental setup and data analysis. Whole-cell, single channels, and perforated patch are discussed. The practicalities of suitable patch glass, noise abatement, and capacitance cancelation are also covered. This book is a must have for all electrophysiologists.
