Laser microsurgery for two-photon imaging in fruit flies

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We demonstrate precise, minimally invasive, laser microsurgery of the fruit fly cuticle for in vivo brain imaging. Following surgery, flies behave normally, as determined by their phototaxis. We recorded odor-evoked calcium transients with 60% ΔF/F.
