Neuronal Activity during Visual Perception 脳に映る視覚世界をリアルタイムで観察

Muto, Ohkura, Abe, Nakai and Kawakami. Real-Time Visualization of Neuronal Activity during Perception. Current Biology, Feb 18, 2013.

Neuronal activity can be detected by measuring calcium influx. GCaMP, a fluorescence calcium indicator, was expressed in the neurons of the optic tectum in zebrafish. Neuronal activity was visualized while the zebrafish larva was seeing the swimming paramecium.
