Abstract
We report a miniature head mounted two-photon fiber-coupled microscope (TP-FCM) for neuronal imaging with active axial focusing enabled using a miniature electrowetting lens. Full three-dimensional two-photon imaging of GCaMP6s showing individual neuron activity in multiple focal planes was achieved in a freely-moving mouse. Two-color simultaneous imaging of GFP and tdTomato fluorescence is demonstrated. Additionally, the axial scanning of the electrowetting lens allows dynamic control of tilt to the focal plane allowing rapid scanning of different regions of interest in three dimensions. Two-photon imaging allows increased penetration depth in tissue with a field-of-view of 240 μm diameter and 200 μm variable axial focus. The TP-FCM has a light-weight design (~4 g) and excellent image stability. TP-FCM with dynamic axial scanning provides a new capability to record from functionally distinct neuronal layers, opening up unique opportunities in neuroscience research.
