Should the DIN or Bio Amp Inputs on a PowerLab be used for recording signals from an isolated nerve?

The DIN and Bio Amp inputs are both differential inputs suitable for selected extracellular recordings.
The Bio Amp input is more sensitive than the DIN inputs. Consequently a potential issue is that signals recorded via the Bio Amp input may be more noisy due to this increased sensitivity.

The MAXIMUM input voltage that can be applied to a Bio Amp is less than the maximum input voltage for a DIN input. Therefore, the user must be careful not to overload the input circuit.
If stimulation is being provided to the nerve, it would be preferable to use a DIN input (not a Bio Amp input).
Currently, ADInstruments supply the Nerve Chamber with two MLA285 Differential Pod Input Cables (DIN to Micro-Hooks) for recordings using the PowerLab Pod ports. This is found to be most suitable in most cases.
