Fiber Photometry

An optical recording technique that uses light source(s), a beamsplitting cube, light detector(s) and an optical fiber chronically implanted in animal brain to deliver excitation light to neurons tagged with a fluorescent calcium indicator(s) and to collect their overall calcium activity-induced fluorescence. The measured changes in fluorescence intensity are related to the underlying neuronal activity.
