Paper Abstract

Low-light-level video techniques are applicable to the non-destructive study of biological phenomena at both the organ or macroscopic level and the cellular or microscopic level. At the macroscopic level, a low-light-level video fluorometer has been employed to study transient NADH changes occuring during cortical brain stimulation and ischemic changes occuring during myocardial infarction. At the microscopic level, low-light-level video techniques have been employed to study rapidly occuring transient events in living cells that are photosensitive at light levels normally employed for visualization.
