How To Install

  • Download the latest version of NeuroMatic (see below).
  • Put NeuroMatic’s folder, or its shortcut, in the Igor Procedures folder. Start Igor Pro. NeuroMatic’s menu should appear within Igor’s top menu bar.
  • Begin by importing your data into the current NeuroMatic data folder (NeuroMatic > Import Waves) or opening a previuosly saved NeuroMatic data file (NeuroMatic > Data Folder > Open).
  • To utilize progress windows in NeuroMatic, you need to download the ProgWin XOP by Jens Rumberg and Kevin Boyce and place it in the Igor Extensions folder. This XOP will allow you to cancel during the middle of analysis or acquisition.
  • Edit and Save your Configurations.
  • See Macros and MyTab to learn how to create your own data analysis functions, or how to create your own tab within NeuroMatic.

Old Experiments

  • Upon starting, NeuroMatic will automatically try to detect if an Igor experiment contains an older version of NeuroMatic. If it does, NeuroMatic will execute the Update NeuroMatic function.
  • If you encounter any problems opening an old Igor experiment that contains NeuroMatic, try updating NeuroMatic (NeuroMatic > Update NeuroMatic).

Clamp Acquisition

  • NIDAQ users should obtain Igor’s NIDAQ Tools MX and place it in your Igor Extensions folder. NOTE, version 2.00 works only with the latest MX drivers and XOP. If you wish to use the old NIDAQ drivers and XOP, you can download version 1.99 below, which works with NeuroMatic 2.00, but utilizes Nclamp’s older user interface.

  • ITC users should obtain the appropriate Igor ITC XOP and place it in your Igor Extensions folder.

  • Start Igor. NeuroMatic’s main menu should appear within the top menu bar.

  • Click the Clamp tab. You should see something like this.

  • Edit your Clamp tab configurations (NeuroMatic > Configs > Edit > Clamp) and your Clamp notebook variables (NeuroMatic > Configs > Edit > Notes) and save your configurations for future use (NeuroMatic > Configs > Save > All). If you save your configurations in NeuroMatic’s folder (default option), the next time you start Igor and NeuroMatic, your configurations will automatically be loaded. If you save your configurations outside NeuroMatic’s folder, you will need to load them yourself (NeuroMatic > Configs > Open).

  • Removing Procedure Files

    The number of Igor procedure files within NeuroMatic’s folder is getting larger, and are therefore taking up more memory when loaded into Igor. If you do not need their functionality, you can remove the following procedure files from NeuroMatic’s folder without error:

      NM_EventTab.ipf (Event Tab)

      NM_FitTab.ipf (Fit Tab)

      NM_Kolmogorov.ipf (Significant Difference / KS Test)

      NM_Log.ipf (Clamp Log File Notebook / Table Generator)

      NM_MyTab.ipf (MyTab Tab)

      NM_ReadAxograph.ipf (Import Axograph)

      NM_ReadPclamp.ipf (Import Pclamp)

      NM_SpikeTab.ipf (Spike Tab)

      NM_Stability.ipf (Stationarity / Stability test)

      NM_StatsTab.ipf (Stats Tab)

      NM_Stim.ipf (Clamp Stim Reader)

      NM_PulseGen.ipf (Clamp Pulse Generator)
