A model lab report (PDF). Here's an example of what we're looking for in your lab reports. The file is in PDF format: if you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 (these files are not compatible with 2.1 or earlier) you can obtain it for free for Mac or PC. This will allow you to view it or print it at the same quality as the original. Note: there are some clear defects in this report; the notes in "Basic Lab Report Writing Tips" take precedence.

Basic Lab Report Writing Tips. Some notes from the TAs based on the lab reports graded so far in the course.

Jeremy Payne's Electrophysiology Notes (PDF). Jeremy Payne's useful collection of the bare minimum theory needed for the practicing/aspiring electrophysiologist. Note that the font (TeX Computer Modern) for the equations is embedded as a bitmap, so they will display a bit chunkier than the rest of the text (but they will print at 300 dpi).
