Paper Abstract

Optical recording uses a voltage-sensitive dye to transduce transmembrane cellular potential into a fluorescence, absorption or birefringence signal. Optical recording is useful for studying cardiac electrophysiology because it (1) is a non-contact method which spares fragile preparations mechanical damage, (2) can achieve sub-cellular spatial resolution, (3) allows acquisition of large numbers of simultaneous readings, and (4) is immune to artifacts produced by electrical shocks.
