Quarantine a Viewed Sweep.  Double-click on an Analysis Graph outlier data point to View the outlier sweep (top panels, black arrow, magenta trace).  Then click a 'Quarantine View Sweep' button to Quaranine this Viewed Sweep file (purple arrow) so that it is no longer reanalyzed (note the missing data point).

Quick Install and Start

WinLTP is a stimulation, data acquisition and on-line analysis electrophysiology software program for studying Long-Term Potentiation (LTP) and similar synaptic phenomena, and uses patch-clamp and extracellular synaptic local field potential recording.  WinLTP is multitasking and simultaneously runs two tasks: 1) stimulus/acquisition sweeps, and 2) continuous acquisition saving Axon Binary Files. Central to the design of WinLTP is the Protocol Builder which can be used to generate complex induction stimulations.  WinLTP also has Automated Perfusion Control, which when coupled with the Protocol Builder, enables automated experiments to be run after a stable baseline has been achieved.

WinLTP is easy to use.  After installation, a single mouse click starts the baseline recording of an extracellular LTP experiment with averaging.  Another  single mouse click will evoke single train stimulation, theta burst stimulation, or Low Frequency Stimulation (for LTD induction).

 

Overview of WinLT

WinLTP runs on Windows computers and uses National Instruments USB, PCI and PCIexpress M- and X-Series data acquisition boards and Axon Instruments' Digidata 1320A and 1322A boards.

Other software that can use National Instruments M- and X-Series boards includes ACQ4, AxoGraphX, Ephus, GePulse, jClamp, mPhys, Nclamp, NeuroRighter, QUB, StdpC, WaveSurfer, WinWCP/WinEDR, and programs written in MatLab, IGOR and  LabView.

WinLTP can be run in two different ways: the Standard version of the WinLTP Acquisition program with full functionality except for Automated Perfusion Control, and the Advanced Version with full functionality including Automated Perfusion Control.  The Standard and  Advanced Versions of WinLTP Acquisition require the purchase of a License Key.  The WinLTP Reanalysis program continues to be free.  Due to a drastic decrease in external funding, the free Basic Version of WinLTP Acquisition program is no longer available from WinLTP Ltd.  However, it seems reasonable that the researchers that actually use WinLTP also help support its development.
