stains for use in vivo

Hi! A bit more about what I want: the kind of stain does not matter, so
long as it can be given to a live animal for tracing a neuron in the 
animal's brain (somatic neurons ie. to muscles aren't enough). Ideally
it should somehow bind to the neural membrane or some protein (normally
there or introduced) in the neural membrane. Immunostains are fine.
It should not show ALL neurons; if it can be injected into one, that is
fine. Put succinctly, the ideal stain would act like a Golgi stain but
allow the neuron to keep working for at least half an hour, and not 
disturb the animal during that time.
