Software Development

Welcome to Payne's Notebook! This is my notebook for a lot of things. Among them, "Research" and "Programming" are the two major parts. I hope some of my notes are usefult to you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at "paynechang@gmail.com".

You can find more information about me, my bookmarks, and some of my favorate photographs in "Payne Chang" section.

In "Research" section, you can find the following information.

  • Research Interests
    • My research interestes.
  • C++ Projects
    • I have developed several programs to control experiments and analyze data. You might find some of them useful to your research. Ephic is the program currently under active development.
  • Calcium Imaging
    • I use calcium-sensitive dye imaging to detect intracellular [Ca2+] change in the dendrites of neurons. Calcium imaging is also a good method to examine active events at dendrites, such as back-propagating action potentials and calcium spikes. Here you can find some of my calcium imaging galleries and notes.
  • NEURON Simulation
    • You can find some of my notes about NEURON, which is a very powerful simulation program.
  • Neurotools
    • Two JavaScript programs calculate the reversal potential (Nernst Equation) and the resting membrane potential (GHK Equation).
  • Electric Circuits
    • You can find information about RC circuits, RL circuits, series RLC circuits, parallel RLC circuits, and a cell model.
  • Equipments
    • It contains some information about my research equipments.
  • Protocols
    • Some of my experiment protocols are here.

Computer Science:

  • Programming Interests
    • I am a skilled programer. Some of my notes on C/C++, Java, Python, FLTK, OpenGL, and Igor Pro are posted here.
  • Information Technology
    • Information technology is powerful and influential. Some of my notes on HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL, XML, AJAX, DHTML, and HTML5 are posted here.
