1. Introduction Calcium imaging refers to optical methods for measuring the concentration of calcium ions in cells. In neuroscience, there has been an explosion in the nuer of studies that employ calcium imaging. For example, the method has been applied to
C4 granule cells exhibited an intracellular calcium response to H 2 O 2 that was similar to that of Prnp –/– mice, and significantly lower than that of wt or tg20 mice. Similar results were obtained using immortalized HpL cells lacking the octapeptide region of PrP
In vivo calcium indior loading of cerebellar cortex We applied a recently introduced method for labeling cell populations with calcium indiors (Stosiek et al. 2003) to the FIG. 1. Calcium indior labeling in cerebellum. A: in vivo 2-photon imaging of cerebellum

Three- and four-dimensional (3- and 4D) imaging.Researchers are often attracted to confocal systems because high-resolution 3D images can be acquired simply. However, many experiments, particularly those using live cells, may be better performed using
A commonly performed method is ion imaging (calcium, chloride, magnesium) using either fluorescent dyes or proteins especially designed to change their emission behavior upon calcium binding. This allows researchers to observe dynamic changes in the ion concentrations of cells.
Fluorescence transients ΔF /F in granule cells in response to single‐current‐evoked APs and AP trains. Fast equilibration A , two‐photon scan of a granule cell filled with 100 μ m OGB‐1 and somatic voltage recordings of this cell''s response to 500 ms depolarizing pulses (white traces at the bottom).
(A–D) Confocal imaging of MIN6 cells labeled with ZIGIR (live cells) and subsequently fixed and permeabilized for immunofluorescence using antibodies against marker proteins of cellular organelles. The sterplot (B) of the cellular ZIGIR intensity and the corresponding insulin immunofluorescence showed a Pearson’s R value of 0.80 ± 0.06 (mean ± SD, n = 116 cells).

Despite the low firing rates observed at rest, granule cells exhibited a dramatic increase in firing at the onset of locomotion, paralleling observations using two-photon calcium imaging in the granule cell layer (Ozden et al., 2012).
Calcium imaging using fluorescent reporters is the most widely used optical approach to investigate activity in intact neuronal circuits with single-cell resolution. Calcium signals, however, are often difficult to interpret, especially if the desired output quantity is
Calcium imaging using fluorescent reporters is the most widely used optical approach to investigate activity in intact neuronal circuits with single-cell resolution. Calcium signals, however, are often difficult to interpret, especially if the desired output quantity is merane voltage or instantaneous firing rates.
These cells, unlike the majority of nerve cells, can form at any time, and those that form in the mature brain are called adult born granule cells (ABGCs). Although it usually takes 10 weeks for these cells to fully mature, they are capable of communiing with each other about 3–4 weeks after being generated.
