Abstract

This article describes a method for spaced stimulation of Drosophilamotor neurons. The neurons can be stimulated for short periodsof time (~2 h) and then fixed (or imaged live). The method allowsone to examine the immediate effects of altering activity onsynaptic protein localization as well as neuromuscular junctionstructure and function.
