SpAcAn, Tagging-Based Analysis of Spontaneous Activity in IGOR Pro
SpAcAn (Spontaneous Activity Analysis) is a collection of IGOR Pro functions for the detection and analysis of spontaneously occuring (non-triggered) events in electrophysiological recordings, such as spikes and synaptic currents and potentials. SpAcAn is developed by electrophysiologists for electrophysiologists and is open-source.
SpAcAn is also available at:
SpAcAn's Main Features
- An easy to use graphical user interface.
- Two- channel event detection and analysis.
- Manual inspection and selection (tagging) of detected events.
- Fit functions for analyzing the decay kinetics of individual synaptic events.
- Common plots (ISI and amplitude histograms, correlograms, event-triggered average etc).
- Saving/loading analysis independently of IGOR's experiments (in version > 1.05).
