Fast Neuronal Imaging using Objective Coupled Planar Illumination Microscopy

This thesis develops a novel light-sheet based technique called Objective Coupled Planar Illumination (OCPI) microscopy which is capable of measuring simultaneous activities of thousands of neurons at high speeds and improves OCPI microscopy by enhancing the spatial resolution deeper in tissue.

Fast functional imaging of multiple brain regions in intact zebrafish larvae using Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy

The extended field of view offered by the SPIM method allowed us to directly identify large scale ensembles of neurons, spanning several brain regions, that displayed correlated activity and were thus likely to participate in common neural processes.

Patterned Two-Photon Illumination for High-Speed Functional Imaging of Brain Networks In Vivo

This chapter describes the combination of scanless imaging with single-photon optogenetic manipulation for all-optical readout and perturbation of brain networks and with microendoscopic imaging for high-speed monitoring of circuit dynamics in deeper brain areas.

Advanced fluorescence microscopy for in vivo imaging of neuronal activity

The present review aims to guide the reader through the main optical systems in the field toward future directions for in vivo microscopy applications.

Imaging volumetric dynamics at high speed in mouse and zebrafish brain with confocal light field microscopy

A detailed understanding of the function of neural networks and how they are supported by a dynamic vascular system requires fast three-dimensional imaging in thick tissues. Here we present confocal

Fast volumetric imaging of neural activity in deep brain

Calcium imaging is a widely-used technique for recording neuronal activity. For deep-brain imaging, light scattering degrades image acquisition. To avoid imaging through thick tissue, one common

A new imaging method is presented, confocal light field microscopy, to enable fast volumetric imaging deep into brain by recording whole brain calcium transients in freely swimming larval zebrafish and observed behaviorally correlated activities on single neurons during its prey capture.

Computational de-scattering for enabling high rate deep imaging of neural activity traces: Simulation study

A simple algorithmic approach for data extraction from blurred images acquired by a dual-modality microscope, which offers additional information regarding the cells' geometrical location and is capable of extracting functional information for depths that may potentially exceed 700μm in cortical tissues, even in the presence of severe additive noise corruption.



Reconstruction of firing rate changes across neuronal populations by temporally deconvolved Ca2+ imaging

Methods to record action potential (AP) firing in many individual neurons are essential to unravel the function of complex neuronal circuits in the brain. A promising approach is bolus loading of

Large, living biological specimens present challenges to existing optical imaging techniques because of their absorptive and scattering properties. We developed selective plane illumination

Construction of a two-photon microscope for video-rate Ca(2+) imaging.

The construction of a video-rate two-photon laser scanning microscope is described, its performance is compared to a similar confocal microscope, and its use for imaging local Ca(2+) transients from cortical neurons in brain slices is illustrated.

In vivo two-photon calcium imaging of neuronal networks

In vivo two-photon calcium imaging recordings indicated that whisker deflection-evoked Ca2+ transients occur in a subset of layer 2/3 neurons of the barrel cortex, demonstrating the suitability of this technique for real-time analyses of intact neuronal circuits with the resolution of individual cells.

Ultramicroscopy: three-dimensional visualization of neuronal networks in the whole mouse brain

This new technique allows optical sectioning of fixed mouse brains with cellular resolution and can be used to detect single GFP-labeled neurons in excised mouse hippocampi and is ideally suited for high-throughput phenotype screening of transgenic mice and thus will benefit the investigation of disease models.
