Abstract

Multiphoton excitation microscopy has revolutionized biomedical research during the last two decades by enabling high resolution fluorescent microscopy in intact tissues. This feature makes two-photon excitation (2PE) microscopy ideal for intravital imaging of neural tissue, permitting the observation of structural and functional neuronal dynamics in undisrupted neural circuits. Here we review the fundamental concepts of intravital 2PE microscopy, describe methods and techniques associated with it, and highlight the most significant findings reported on neuron and glia structure dynamics as well as on neuronal activity using this in vivo imaging technique.
