Neural Imaging with Optics

Dynamic neural imaging is a growing field which is improving our understanding of neural structure and function from the level of single neurons to whole brain systems. This workshop will provide an introduction to this field and explore new optical methods for imaging changes in the brain. (Abstracts)
