Abstract: Neurotransmitter release is the key factor of chemical messaging in the brain. Fast, sensitive and in situ detection of single cell neurotransmitter release is essential for the investigation of synaptic transmission under physiological or pathophysiological conditions. Although various techniques have been developed for detecting neurotransmitter release both in vitro and in vivo, the sensing of such events still remains challenging. First of all, the amount of neurotransmitter released during synaptic transmission is unknown because of the limited number of molecules released and the fast diffusion and reuptake of these molecules after release.
