Summary The volume aims to explore the dynamic nature of the autophagy pathway, and the latest techniques that allow researchers to capture and quantify this process in neurons. The chapters in this volume cover topics such as fundamental, historical, and functional approaches that began in baker's yeast; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; the role of both electron microscopy and live-cell imaging using fluorescently tagged autophagy proteins; and the rate of puncta appearance and its correlation with the rate of autophagosome formation. In the Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory. Cutting-edge and practical, Imaging and Quantifying Neuronal is a valuable resource that provides insights into the power of microscopy tools, live-cell imaging, and photoactivation and correlative techniques
