How Do Ion Channels Really Work, Fundamentals of Biological Electrical Activity, the Bits of the Brain?
Ion channels mediate all forms of biological electrical activity. I developed a new analysis method called covariance fitting(CVF). Unlike conventional methods, CVF does not involve surrogate parameters, but creates a direct link between recorded ion channel data and the properties of the actual channels. It is a form of maximum likelihood fitting, the most powerful method of extracting information from data. Support will allow me to apply this method to data that has already been collected.
