Use of biological toxins from different kinds is widely accepted in electrophysiological experiments. In particular, electrophysiological recordings from brain tissue slices are usually conducted with toxins to manipulate on different receptors or ion channels. Here we describe usage of toxins in electrophysiological experiments in acute brain slices.
