      Animals find mates and food, and avoid predators, by navigating to regions within a favorable range of available sensory cues. How are these ranges set and recognized? Here we show that male Caenorhabditis elegans exhibit ...
    • Pan-neuronal imaging in roaming Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Venkatachalam, Vivek; Ji, Ni; Wang, Xian-Ling; Clark, Christopher Luce; Mitchell, James Kameron; Klein, Mason Joseph; Tabone, Christopher; Florman, Jeremy; Ji, Hongfei; Greenwood, Joel S.f.; Chisholm, Andrew; Srinivasan, Jagan; Alkema, Mark; Zhen, Mei; Samuel, Aravinthan DT (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2015)
      We present an imaging system for pan-neuronal recording in crawling Caenorhabditis elegans. A spinning disk confocal microscope, modified for automated tracking of the C. elegans head ganglia, simultaneously records the ...
