%Program interpolating a fast calcium response
%Data traces should be organised in couloumns. Sampling time should be in the first coloumn%
%First row should be the name of the ROIs or stimulations%
%data should be in a .txt format and placed in a directory folder of the
%same name.
%The starttime.xls document should contain a spread sheet with the names of
%the experiment folder in the first column, the start of stimulation time
%in the second column and the stimulation frequency in the third column.
