Enhanced multiphoton excitation methods for neuroscience


Neuroscience, and biomedical research in particular requires methods for observing small, faint structures deep within living tissue. Confocal laser scanning microscopy has provided important advances and its successor technology multiphoton excitation microscopy offers even greater benefits. To help realise these benefits, the collaborators on this project will develop new and more efficient fem to second lasers, scanning and detecting devices, 2-photon absorbing probes and fluroscent lifetime imaging methods. these devices will be exploited to investigate vesicular excytosis and mechanisms responsible for persistent changes in synaptic strength in the mammilian central nervous system.
