    Adaptive Optics Two-Photon Endomicroscopy Achieves Synaptic Resolution Imaging of Brain Tissue

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Scientists from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) developed a technology for in vivo imaging of deep brain structures at synaptic resolution. The technology, “adaptive optics two-photon endomicroscopy,” enables scientists to acquire information necessary to elucidating the ways in which the brain functions, overcoming limitation with existing imaging methods to shed light on brain functionality in previously unexplored regions of the brain.

    The technology pairs a miniature endoscope (GRIN lens) with existing adaptive optics methods. GRIN lens resolution is low, and because the imaging field of view is limited, the lens is unable to clearly image certain very small structures in the brain,…
