Fiber photometry has become the technique of choice for many researchers in the field of systems neuroscience because of its relative simplicity compared to other in vivo recording techniques, its high signal-to-noise ratio, and the ability to record in a variety of behavioral paradigms. It most commonly used in conjunction with genetically-encoded calcium indicators (GECIs, the GCaMP series) . GECIs change their ability to fluoresce based on whether or not they are bound to calcium. Because the internal concentration of calcium in neurons is very tightly regulated and voltage-gated calcium channels open when a neuron fires an action potential, transient increases in internal calcium concentration, which result in transient increases in the ability of a GECI to fluorescence, can be a good proxy for neuronal firing.

Fiber Photometry System - multi-channel & dual-color

Application in neural circuits studies:mainly used to record changes in fluorescence intensity of neurons in population to characterize changes in neuronal activity.
In the study of the regulation of learning, movement, social contact and other behaviors, the changes of neuronal activity in the following processes were detected steadily for a long time.
