Intercepting neuronal transmissions with a genetically encoded fluorescent sensor

The nervous system's circuitry is linked together via intercellular junctions known as synapses, and signal transmission across these connections depends on neurotransmitters?specific chemicals that directly deliver excitatory or inhibitory signals from one neuron to another. Scientists are now able to monitor receptor activity in living cells with unprecedented precision.
