Optical study of the structural alteration in hippocampal tissues in chronic stress using partial wave spectroscopy (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

We report mesoscopic physics based nanoscale sensitive partial wave spectroscopy (PWS) study of the structural changes in brain hippocampal region due to chronic stress induced by a stress hormone in a mouse model. Our results show that the change in the average degree of structural disorder in hippocampal tissues from stressed hormone induced mice brains has a higher structural disorder value relative to that of controlled mice, and the change is in correlation with the duration of the stress. Furthermore, the structural changes are peaked around the mid hippocampal regions, both sides of the hippocampal tissues centering around the ventricle.
