Call for Papers


Special Issue on Bio-photonics in Neuroscience and Brain Diseases

Call for Papers: Attributed to significant advancement in laser technology over the past decades, innovation of bio-photonics has made profound contributions to all aspects of neuroscience and fundamental research of brain diseases. Emerging tools and concepts based on light, such as Molecular nonlinear optics, Large FOV light sheet microscopy, Deep tissue adaptive imaging, Genetically manipulating optogenetics and many others, are providing full range of capabilities for investigating brain and dysfunction of brain. This special issue calls for the experts in all cutting-edge field of bio-photonics, who are pushing the limit of photonics to study brain and pursuing treatment of brain diseases. Original research papers and review articles that discuss most recent breakthroughs and their potential impacts in various research fields are both welcome. Manuscripts will be internationally peer-reviewed. Topics we specifically seek to cover include:

Development of emerging optical tools to visualize brain clearly with molecular information.

Development of new targeting probes and labeling strategies for neuroscience

Cutting-edge optical capability of manipulating neural activity, and optical methodology to observe fast brain dynamics and functions

Research on brain diseases and their intervention
