The group works on developing and applying new optical techniques to problems in neuroscience. There are three main themes: neurosurgical guidance with spectroscopy, multimodal live animal microscopy for disease characterization with novel modalities (such as coherent Raman for myelin imaging and cancer diagnosis), and imaging of brain activity to extract and model processing patterns in the zebrafish.
Key words: neurosurgery, neurosurgical guidance, spectroscopy, microscopy, live animal imaging, endoscopy, multimodal, video, optical detection of neuronal activity (calcium and electrical), complexity analysis, network modelling, information processing.
