Optical Technology Advances Non-Invasive Functional Imaging of the Human Brain

A team of researchers at Wright State University has demonstrated for the first time that optical blood flow contrast measured by Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy (DCS) can be used to detect Resting State Functional Connectivity (RSFC) in the human brain. RSFC indicates spontaneous activity of the resting brain showing high synchronization in functionally related regions, adjacent or even remote regions. ​

Special Issue "Molecular and Functional Optical Imaging for Disease Diagnosis and Therapy Monitoring"

We have been invited to edit a special issue of the Journal of Imaging. This special issue will focus on “Molecular and Functional Optical Imaging for Disease Diagnosis and Therapy Monitoring” and will contain novel findings on related topics. We would like to extend you an invitation to contribute original research articles that will stimulate the continuing translational efforts to bring diffuse optical imaging from the bench to the bedside.

Chien Poon nominated for Graduate Student Excellence Award

The Graduate Student Excellence Awards Program is an event to recognize the outstanding achievements of our graduate students. Each of the graduate programs nominates a student for this award on the basis of superior academic achievement, noteworthy thesis or dissertation research, and a clearly demonstrated potential to make significant contributions to his or her chosen field.
