Raman spectroscopy of neurons

Raman spectroscopy have attracted attention as a non-invasive method to measure the function and distribution of bio molecules in cells without any labeling. Currently our lab. is carrying on a study to clarify the function of neural transmitters in the central nervous system by means of Raman spectroscopy. In the presentation, I will show the examples of Raman spectra and imaging of living hippocampal neurons taken from rat fetuses. I also show the results of Raman spectroscopy of glutamate, which is one of the neuro transmitters.
