The day of two rigs

Today I am attempting to use TWO rigs simultaneously. Probably not a great idea, as I often have trouble getting a result from just the one rig.

On the confocal rig I plan to patch and fill a hippocampal pyramidal cell with Alexa dye so that K, my undergrad student, can do her spine imaging experiment.

Then on the field rig I will be doing my usual tetanus LTP followed by chemical LTP.

Meanwhile outside the window, snow gently falls on Bloomsbury. I think it's going to be a late night.....
