Abstract

He et al. use high-speed confocal imaging to visualize the dynamic morphology of proprioceptive sensory neurons through the transparent skin of crawling Drosophila larvae. They use machine vision to create 3D models that describe how the neurons change during locomotion. They investigate the activity of the cells and the role of Tmc channels.
