Paper Abstract

Brain imaging is becoming an important field in the frame of the neurophotonics in correlations with other medical ones in neuroscience studying functional and morphological aspects. In this presentation an overview on multi photon imaging of the brain will be presented, together with innovative aspects related to big area imaging and correlative microscopy approaches. Multiphoton imaging applications will be described together with methods to improve the penetration depth and obtain large area detection, or correlating functional aspects in vivo on single neuron with large area, even on whole brain, morphological aspects. Connecting super resolution features at the nanometer level with micro, meso and macroscopic architectures is in fact one of the challenging aspects to understand brain functioning.
