Paper Abstract

Stress factors can be visualized reliably by measurements of motion dynamics. Spatial portraits and temporal diagrams of impulses from two different kinds of cells, Physarum and Dictyostelium discoideum, are considered in the present work. Large numbers of biological applications require development of quantitative measurements in the dimensional range of classical optics. In order to apply this, we used a 3D RM 600 autofocus profilometer with spatial resolution of 1 micrometers 2. It allows measurement at the dynamical bands of 0.001 - 120 Hz. Perspectives and measured results as well as applications of another computer-aided microscopical technique are discussed.
