The article presents an investigation of new techniques which can repeat high resolution optical imaging of synapse formation events in live neural tissues to determine the dynamics of synapse information. Two vertebrate nervous system were studied using laser-scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy and fluorescent membrane stains. The results showed that high quality images can be obtained that shows clearly the subcellular structures involved in synapse formation. The imaging process can be repeated many times without affecting the development process of interest.
