Image at left with black background: In the eye of a transgenic mouse, a single motion-sensitive visual cell in the retina (green) has highlighted the neighbouring visual cells it is in contact with (purple). This was achieved by infecting it with a specially modified virus that can only cross from one neuron to another that it is in contact with (Yonehara et al., <em>Nature</em>, 2011). (Both images: Keisuke Yonehara)
Image at right with blue background: The calcium level is an expression of the activity of bipolar cells and motion-sensitive visual cells. The calcium is measured by expressing an intracellular calcium sensor (GCaMP3) in them. The activity in a nerve terminal (purple circle) is indicated as the purple curve, and in a ganglion cell dendrite (green circle) as the green circle (Yonehara et al., <em>Neuron</em>, 2013).
