Abstract:This article describes a simple electronic unit to obtain time-lapse recordings with the use of a common remote-controlled home video cassette recorder, for example a VHS recorder. The electronic unit is a timer to be connected to the remote-control unit. The video cassette recorder itself remains unchanged. Replay of the recorded images speeds up the original process by a factor of 2-100 × or more. This technique has been applied in video micrographic studies of (1) the development of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells in culture, including growth cone and Schwann cell movements, and (2) tumor cell killing by natural killer (NK) cells.
