Recent Developments in VSD Imaging of Small Neuronal Networks
Hill, Evan S.; Bruno, Angela M.; Frost, William N.
Learning & Memory, v21 n10 p499-505 Oct 2014
Voltage-sensitive dye (VSD) imaging is a powerful technique that can provide, in single experiments, a large-scale view of network activity unobtainable with traditional sharp electrode recording methods. Here we review recent work using VSDs to study small networks and highlight several results from this approach. Topics covered include circuit mapping, network multifunctionality, the network basis of decision making, and the presence of variably participating neurons in networks. Analytical tools being developed and applied to large-scale VSD imaging data sets are discussed, and the future prospects for this exciting field are considered.
