Efficient and accurate extraction of in vivo calcium signals from microendoscopic video data

PMCID: 5871355
PMID: 29469809
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.28728.031

[…] analysis () and the original CNMF method ().After choosing the thresholds for seed pixels (), we run CNMF-E in full automatic mode, without any manual interventions. Two open-source MATLAB packages, CellSort (https://github.com/mukamel-lab/CellSort; ) and ca_source_extraction (https://github.com/epnev/ca_source_extraction; ), were used to perform PCA/ICA () and basic CNMF (), respectively. Since […]


Automated Functional Analysis of Astrocytes from Chronic Time Lapse Calcium Imaging Data

Front Neuroinform
PMCID: 5509822
PMID: 28769780
DOI: 10.3389/fninf.2017.00048

[…] n proposed to analyse similar imaging data of other types of cells, especially neurons. Is it necessary to design new analytical tools specifically for astrocytes? In addition to the discussion about CellSort in Section Well Modeling the Propagation of Ca2+ Transients Endows FASP with Good Performance, our survey also shows that neuron-targeted algorithms can hardly be directly generalized to work […]


In vivo calcium imaging from dentate granule cells with wide field fluorescence microscopy

PLoS One
PMCID: 5507494
PMID: 28700611
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0180452

[…] tiple cells []. This mixed signal can be separated into signal from individual cells using statistical techniques [–]. We used principal and independent component analysis (PCA and ICA)-based method (Cellsort)[] for cell sorting.The mouse was head-fixed on a spherical treadmill that allows the mouse to run freely () []. A custom virtual-reality (VR) system for rodents [–] was used to present spati […]


Rapid signaling in distinct dopaminergic axons during locomotion and reward

PMCID: 4970879
PMID: 27398617
DOI: 10.1038/nature18942

[…] egions of the field) from the mean fluorescence image for each time series. Fluorescence traces and ROIs from putative single axon segments from the sparsely labeled fields (, –) were generated using CellSort with the following parameters: smoothing width = 1.5, mu = 0.8, principal components = 200, area limits = 50 – 3000 pixels. ROI fluorescence traces and ROI morphology were visibly inspected a […]
