Multiscale neuro-vascular imaging in the mouse brain
Our research applies exciting physics from magnetic resonance, non-linear optics, and machine learning to study the brain across spatial scales. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a powerful tool for mapping brain activity non-invasively and is the foundation of tens of thousands of neuroscience studies. However, it is an indirect measure based on neuro-vascular interactions. Studying these interactions could thus improve its interpretation and applicability. Towards this goal, I will present different imaging tools that allow us to examine neuro-vascular interactions across different spatial scales in awake mice. I will also present modeling approaches that integrate and complement imaging data.
