Fluctuation analysis

Fluctuation analysis

method used to determine (for example) how many ion channels contribute to the transmembrane current. On the assumption that each channel is either open or shut, the noise in the recorded current can be considered to arise from the statistical fluctuation in the number of channels open and the magnitude of the fluctuation gives an estimate of the conductance of a single channel.
