“Sculpted Light in the Brain” is a one-day conference and workshop aimed at fostering collaborations between neuroscientists, computer scientists, optics researchers, and other scientists who share the common interest of developing better technology to observe and control neural activity in the awake, behaving brain. “Sculpted Light” refers to a broad class of methods where light is shaped to probe neural function.
This meeting aims to promote future collaboration opportunities by gathering established scientists and the next generation of researchers from these fields to discuss future technologies that will enable real time optical communication with the living brain.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Neurophotonics is inviting submissions from participants at SLB 2017 to submit a paper based on the work presented there, as well as those researchers who were not able to attend but have work to contribute that meets the scope of this special section.
Submission guidelines and more information can be found here.
Deadline is September 2017.
