  • New SPIE journal to cover neurophotonics

BioPhotonics
Dec 2013
SPIE will launch the peer-reviewed journal Neurophotonics in 2014 under Editor-in-Chief David Boas of Massachusetts General Hospital. The new quarterly journal will focus on novel optical technologies for imaging and manipulation of brain structure and function.

It will cover optical technologies and methods that are driving profound advances in understanding brain phenomena, such as electrical excitability, neuroglial partnership, neurovascular signaling, metabolic activity, and hemodynamics in health and disease, SPIE said. The journal will cover topics including optogenetics and other optical methods of manipulating cellular behavior, photoacoustic methods spanning from optical to acoustic resolution, and superresolution nanoscopic methods. A key goal of the publication, Boas said, will be to foster greater awareness and interaction among the photonics, neuroscience and clinical communities.

All articles will be freely available during the first year.
