Shining Light on the Brain: New Imaging Techniques for Seeing Neurons in action

One of the grand challenges of the 21st century is to decipher the neural mechanisms that underlie brain function and consciousness and to elucidate the causes of devastating brain disorders such as depression and Alzheimer’s disease.

As outlined in President Obama’s BRAIN Initiative, innovation in neurotechnology will transform our ability in understanding the brain. Researchers in the School of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell Engineering are developing advanced optical tools to enable these detailed studies of brain function and dysfunction.

In this webinar, we will describe these powerful new techniques, and discuss the unique interdisciplinary culture that enables Cornell to be at the cutting edge of neurotechnology development.
