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 micrometer2. 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.
