Drosophila neural stem cells (NSCs) divide asymmetrically to generate siblings of different sizes. This model system has proved helpful in deciphering the contribution of polarity cues and the mitotic spindle in asymmetric cell division. Here, we describe a technique we developed to flatten cultured Drosophila brain explants to accurately image the cytoskeleton in live NCSs. We also describe our approach to efficiently remove centrosomes by laser photo-ablation and to measure daughter cell size after NSC division.
