Abstract

We report a novel 'fluorescent dopamine' that possesses essential features of natural dopamine. Our method is simple and is readily extended to monoamine neurotransmitters such as l-norepinephrine, serotonin and GABA, providing a more practical approach. Because of its compatibility with sensitive fluorescent measurements, we envisage that our approach will have a broad range of applications in neural research.
