Recent advances in brain imaging have revolutionized our understanding of neural circuits at the level of proteins, cells, and network interactions. In particular, optical techniques combined with novel probes to measure neural activity enable an unprecedented window into brain function. Additionally, new methods are being developed to image the brain in freely moving animals to investigate function during behavior. This symposia will focus on the latest optical methods applied to imaging the brain in vivo with future implications for research in neurological disorders and basic neuroscience. Topics include fast volumetric imaging such as lightsheet, multifocus methods, multiphoton microscopy, spectroscopic imaging, fiber-based imaging, optical probes, and laser sources.
