Neurons were filled with a fluorescent dye, allowing the morphology of the cell to be determined. Microelectrodes were filled with either 5-CF or Alexa Fluor 568 (Molecular Probes). Cells were filled iontophoretically using a pulse generator, which applied regular interval negative square current pulses into the neuron for >30 min. The preparation was then left overnight at 4°C. Images of the neurons were taken using a digital camera (Andor iXon EMCCD) mounted on a Leica stereomicroscope.
