calcium imaging, neural activity, membrane potential probe, neurotransmitter reporter
Recent years have witnessed the fascinating development of imaging approaches to studying neural activities; this progress has been based on an inﬂux of ideas and methods from molecular biology and optical engineering. Here we review the design and application of genetically encoded indicators for calcium ions, membrane potential and neurotransmitters. We also summarize common strategies for the design and optimization of genetically encoded neural activity indicators.
