How do electrical signal propagate through brain tissue? To answer this question, groups from the Department of Biology and the Department of Physics will collaborate within the framework of a new FOM-program on Neurophotonics.

This program brings together experts in the field of single-neuron physiology (Corette Wierenga and Maarten Kole) with excellent groups in advanced imaging and wavefront shaping technology (Lukas Kapitein, Hans Gerritsen, Allard Mosk, Ivo Vellekoop (Twente), in order to unravel the physical principles underlying signal generation, propagation and integration in neurons embedded in functional circuits using advanced light-based methodology.
