David Anderson tells how his team at Cal Tech identified activated neurons in the brains of fruit flies. Using a two-photon microscope, they were able to peer into the brain of a fruit fly and identify specific neurons "lighting up" in response to wind or the recorded sound of a potential mate's courtship song.
