Brain mapping: new wave optical imaging

Curr Biol. 2003 Sep 30;13(19):R778-80. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2003.09.022.


Optical imaging of intrinsic signals is widely used for high-resolution brain mapping in various animal species. A new approach using continuous data acquisition and Fourier decomposition of the signal allows for much faster mapping, opening up the possibility of applying this method to new experimental questions.
