Abstract

We have developed a functional imaging technique based on optical coherence tomography (OCT). This technique resolves 0.01-0.1 mm functional structures along the depth axis. The basis of the technique is that neural activation changes light scattering of the light penetrating the neural tissue due to activity dependent structural changes.
