The purpose of this project is to establish new techniques which visualize the functional map of the brain. Toward this goal, we are currently developing new fluorescent calcium probes which can detect neuronal activities in the brain. In combination of these fluorescent probes with the cutting-edge imaging techniques, we will be able to analyze the neural network activity in the brain at a mesoscopic level.
