In this chapter we present basic features of multi-photon nanosurgery and show some examples that illustrate the advantages offered by this novel methodology. In the first part we will review selected literature on the application of pulsed-laser irradiation to biological samples, focusing on the nervous system. In the second part we will discuss hypotheses on the mechanism of nanosurgery. The third section will provide technical details on laser dissection.
