Scope

SPIE Brain 2018, part of SPIE Photonics West BiOS, highlights research that describes the development of innovative technologies that will increase our understanding of brain structure and function. This special issue of Neurophotonics is intended to complement SPIE Brain 2018 by providing a forum for peer-reviewed journal publication. Note that SPIE publication policy permits manuscripts based on content reported in SPIE proceedings to be submitted to SPIE journals.

Key topics that will be addressed include:

  • imaging
  • sensing
  • optogenetics and optical manipulation
  • clinical and translational neurophotonics.

A cover letter indicating that the submission is intended for this special issue should be included with the paper.
