The Functional Optical Imaging Laboratory (FOIL) is dedicated to developing novel optical imaging technologies for studying the brain

Research Highlights

Figure for Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging

Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging

We develop blood flow imaging systems to study the effects of ischemic stroke on cortical perfusion and to better understand the underlying physics of dynamic light scattering.

Figure for Multiphoton Microscopy

Multiphoton Microscopy

We design high-resolution nonlinear microscopes to study the three-dimensional vascular and neuronal structures of the cortex at depths pushing the limits of optical imaging.

3D Single Particle Tracking

We built a three-dimensional particle tracking system (TSUNAMI) capable of spatial localization far beyond the diffraction limit for use in studying molecular transport dynamics.
