I will give an update on tools for studying neural circuits. Specific topics will include: calcium indicators like GCaMP, sensors for neurotransmitters (glutamate, GABA, acetylcholine, serotonin, etc) and drugs (nicotine, ketamine, etc), viruses for retrograde labeling of projection neurons, correlative light/electron microscopy, etc.
