Summary Electrophysiology is one of the finest approaches capable of detecting and analyzing electrical events in the brain. However, like all other experimental approaches, it has its limitations. This book was created to serve as a guide for those endeavoring to understand the function of electrophysiology and its underlying components: neurons, neural systems, and the brain. It introduces and highlights important topics in the field of electrophysiology, while also extending these topics to practical electrophysiological approaches through the perspective of the two authors. This book is ideal for graduate students or junior postdoctoral fellows interested in starting a journey in synaptic neuroscience
