Abstract
The ability to visualize deep brain structures in vivo with high spatial resolution is of rising interest to investigate neuronal physiology and cerebral vasculature. The optical technique two-photon microscopy (2PM) is widely used to study individual neural circuits and blood vessel networks because it is minimally invasive and provides three-dimensional images with cellular resolution. In this talk, I discuss the development and application of a novel laser source that extends the traditional imaging depth of 2PM
