Titel: Investigating cellular cerebral energy metabolism with in vivo two-photon microscopy.
Two-photon fluorescence microscopy has become one of the most important research tools in modern neuroscience. Significant effort has gone into the development of (1) longitudinal and
(2) deep tissue imaging as well as into (3) engineering a wide array of genetically encoded sensors. Another equally important branch of research has focused on (4) bringing two-photon derived imaging data to a quantitative level. Our lab uses this methodological arena to investigate energy metabolism at the single cell level.
