Abstract

This paper discusses the problem of obtaining reliable quantitative experimental data when the functional activity of brain cells is studied by fluorescence microscopy, using specific calcium dyes. A method is developed for determining the calcium-ion concentration from the current fluorescence intensity at a single wavelength, starting from the coloration protocol and the excitation conditions and making it unnecessary to carry out calibration in each experiment.
