The brain has been called one of the last frontiers in all of biology. As such, a better understanding of how this complex organ functions will monumentally advance the life sciences as well as greatly impact medicine by improving the diagnosis and treatment of neuropathologies. Measuring the electrical and chemical activities of neurons, a cell type highly specialized for rapid, long-distance communication and information integration [1], has proven to be a complementary and effective strategy for investigating brain function, especially in the context of behavior. New technologies and refinement of existing ones are expected to play an important role in sustaining the success of this approach in the future.
