Research Project

Fluorescent sensors for neurotransmitter towards real-time imaging of acetylcholine in vivo

Develop a device to provide a novel of simultaneously imaging from and stimulating nervous tissue.

The ultimate aims of this project are to 1) identify novel candidate optical indicators for ACh and other neuroactive compounds, to 2) develop a device to provide a novel of simultaneously imaging from and stimulating nervous tissue, and 3) to apply these novel tools to systems where ACh can be measured with fine spatiotemporal resolution while experimentally manipulating ACh release.
