FIGURE 1. The transparent zebrafish embryo enables paired patch clamp measurements of spinal neurons and locomotory muscle cells. Two chevron-shaped repetitive segments of tail muscle are shown. The two patch clamp recording electrodes are shown for an individual motoneuron and muscle cell. Only one electrode is visible in the field because placement of the electrodes during formation of whole-cell recording mode is done under very high magnification.

FIGURE 1. Two monolithic beam expansion systems are shown with spherical surfaces (top) and with a convex aspheric surface (center) for an enlargement of M=2. Incoming beam diameter is 10 mm. The wavefront aberrations for the aspheric approach are four orders of magnitude smaller. Three cascade systems are shown for beam expansion based on monolithic individual systems (bottom: 10.5x enlargement (a), 21x enlargement (b), and 9.3x enlargement (c). System (b) differs from (a) by the addition of an element with M=2. System (c) differs from (b) by the inversion of the last element with M=1.5.

High-stability flexure mounts were crucial to Opotek's miniaturized, shippable OPO with its shipping-based technical support model (a). Thermal stability (averaged over both x and y axes) is shown for a Siskiyou IXF1.0i monolithic flexure mount and for high-stability kinematic mounts from two other manufacturers (b). Thermal performance data for the latter two are from manufacturers' published literature.

Olfactory bulb (OB) neurons receiving olfactory sensory neuron input exhibit light-evoked responses. (a) An OB slice shows the axons of olfactory sensory neurons co-expressing the odorant receptor M72 and ChR2 (left), and in another slice under fluorescent illumination (right, top) and differential interference contrast (right, bottom), the OB neurons are visible. (b) Whole-cell recording in voltage clamp configuration (Vhold= -70 mV) from an OB neuron: Laser stimulation causes large, inward post-synaptic currents, indicating that light-sensitive olfactory sensory neurons form synapses with this cell.
