MC_Rack is a data acquisition and analysis software. Combined with the hardware, for example the MC_Card, USB-MEA-Systems or USB-ME-Systems, it forms a complete data acquisition system for measuring extracellular activities of excitable cells, in vitro and in vivo. It has been developed especially for use with the data acquisition systems from Multi Channel Systems MCS GmbH, but the software is also ideally suited to work with other experimental setups.
Easy to use software package to do standardized LTP and LTD recordings in hippocampal acute slices, which can control MEA amplifiers and stimulus generators from Multi Channel Systems MCS GmbH from within one software. For long term potentiation and long term depression experiments.
To access MC_Rack data files from the Neuroshare API, the data are mapped to the structure given by Neuroshare API. This API is implemented in a Windows DLL or Linux or Mac (Intel) shared library by a set of predefined functions.
