(This article belongs to the Special Issue Neurophotonics – Optics for the Brain)
Light-tissue interactions allow for a multitude of possibilities to sense; image; and impact the brain at molecular, cellular, and tissue levels. The application of optical techniques to neuronal tissue is the essence of neurophotonics, to which this Special Issue is dedicated. The eleven articles in this Special Issue are representative of the broad scope of this field and of the wide range of optical techniques that it encompasses. In more detail, the articles cover basic neuroscience, neuroanatomy, functional imaging, cerebral hemodynamics, brain development and aging, brain–computer interfaces, and therapeutic treatments. The optical techniques considered include various types of optical microscopy, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustic imaging, diffuse optical spectroscopy and imaging, photobiomodulation, and optogenetics.
