Two-Photon Versus One-Photon In Vivo Imaging for Understanding the Neural Circuit Basis of Behavior
Our exciting DECODE Summit kicks off this week (I’ll tell you much more about DECODE in future posts, but for now read here how the goal is to incentivize investigators to pursue groundbreaking brain research), and you’d think I wouldn’t have the time to squeeze in a blog post, but I can’t help myself, because we have a very cool white paper that I want you to know about right away. Neuroscientists, check this out! If you’re interested in expanding your optical brain imaging toolbox for understanding the neural circuit basis of behavior, then you’ll want to read this white paper comparing one-photon to two-photon in vivo calcium imaging.
To download the white paper “Two-Photon and Miniaturized One-Photon Microscopy A Technology Discussion for Neural Circuit Imaging”, go here.
The white paper breaks down the strengths and limitations of commercially available one-photon and two-photon approaches, including in vivo imaging attributes of each. It contains seven pages of useful information you won’t want to miss, and even discusses data analysis pipelines. Both two photon and one photon imaging methods give you access to deep brain areas, and perhaps you’re thinking you already know all there is to know about the two methods, especially if you have a two-photon system in your lab. But you might be surprised by how the white paper affects your conceptions about two-photon versus one-photon imaging.
Alright, be sure to tell us what you think about the white paper. We care a lot about the Inscopix and neuroscience community, and we really enjoy hearing from you, so please leave your comments! We’re here to make your research into neural circuits more productive, hassle free, and successful.
Stay tuned for more about the DECODE Summit! Coming soon!
