    Effects of fluorescent glutamate indicators on neurotransmitter diffusion and uptake

    Moritz Armbruster et al.
    Fluorescent glutamate indicators distort the time course of neurotransmitter diffusion and uptake by competing with transporters, an important caveat to consider when using iGluSnFR and its analogs.

    Single-molecule fluorimetry and gating currents inspire an improved optical voltage indicator

    Jeremy S Treger et al.
    ArcLight, a popular optogenetic reporter of voltage, is studied at both single-molecule and macroscopic levels, which leads to new mechanistic understanding and to the rational design of a faster reporter.
