Population dynamics of patterned neuronal firing are fundamental to information processing in the brain. Multiphoton microscopy in combination with calcium indicator dyes allows circuit dynamics to be imaged with single-neuron resolution. However, the temporal resolution of fluorescent measures is constrained by the imaging frequency imposed by standard raster scanning techniques. As a result, traditional raster scans limit the ability to detect the relative timing of action potentials in the…

Multiphoton minimal inertia scanning for fast acquisition of neural activity signals
TLDR
The Adaptive Spiral Scanning algorithm is described, which fits a set of near-circular trajectories to the cellular distribution to avoid inertial drifts of galvanometer position and is an easily implementable way for standard multi-photon laser scanning systems to gain temporal precision in the detection of action potentials while scanning hundreds of active cells.
