Why is the Spike Histogram module only allowed to analyze Channel 1 in LabChart 8 for Windows?

This is a known issue with the Spike Histogram Module for Windows version 2.6, and will be fixed in an upcoming software release.  In the meantime, the issue can be worked around by doing the following:


  • Select the Discriminator option from the Spike Histogram module's drop-down menu.

servlet.ImageServer?id=015w00000026m3c&oid=00D20000000HncM


  • In the Discriminator window, change the analysis channel to the desired channel.

servlet.ImageServer?id=015w00000026m3h&oid=00D20000000HncM


The correct channel or channel selection will now be analyzed when the Spike Histogram module is instructed to identify spikes and/or units.  Note, this exact process will need to be repeated whenever the user would like to analyze a different channel.
