Temperature and voltage clamp

Hi,
I was talking to a colleague today, who primary studies antiepileptics with 
voltage clamp on voltage sensitive sodium channels expressed in X. Oocytes. 
He told me he does all of his work, I believe, at 15ºC... Does that sound 
right?

Why would he use such a low temperature? So he could see any effects of 
gating more readily? Any ideas?
