Fundamentally, GECI and GEVI measure different things, but both are advertised as reporters of “neuronal activity”. Dr. Srdjan D. Antic, associate professor, recently published “Population imaging discrepancies between a genetically-encoded calcium indicator (GECI) versus a genetically-encoded voltage […]
