Paper Abstract

Using phase-sensitive full-field swept-source optical coherence tomography we already showed that morphological changes in the photoreceptor outer segments are detectable. Those signals manifest themselves in an elongation of the optical path length. Using improved post.processing we report on progress in detecting signals in the neuronal layers of the human retina. The spatially resolved signals show a characteristic time course and by combining these with simultaneous measurements of the photoreceptors we were able to generate a wiring map of the neuronal retina.
