Optics links brain research to behavior

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Optics and microscopy have always played important roles in neuroscience. The innovations brought by optogenetics and fiber photometry, in the context of freely moving animals and behavioral research, have only reinforced those roles. Conventional microscopy has been complemented by imaging of individual neuronal activity within a selected group of tagged neurons by a miniature fluorescent microscope, or miniscope, mounted directly on the heads of freely moving, tethered lab animals. Miniscopes and fiber photometry, combined with optogenetics, provide the basis for modern behavioral...Read full article
