Paper Abstract

Optical brain imaging based on intrinsic signals has revealed new insights into functional brain activation imaging. The main obstacle to this approach is the highly scattering cranial bone over the cortex which hinders the observation of intrinsic optical signals. We have introduced a novel solution for this limitation by proposing a transparent cranial implant providing long-term optical access to the brain, which we call the Window to the Brain (WttB) implant. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of the WttB implant for multi-wavelength intrinsic optical signal imaging of the brain.
