The recent BRAIN initiative in the USA, and the Human Brain Project in Europe have highlighted how little we know about the way that the brain works. These initiatives have identified that technologies are urgently needed to better probe the working brain, across all levels from single neurons to entire behaving organisms. Optical tools and techniques have become central to neuroscience and biomedical research, spanning from optogenetics and fluorescent proteins, to in-vivo microscopy and
approaches for human brain imaging. This conference will bring together researchers working in all aspects of optics in the brain and will serve as a forum for discussion of existing and emerging techniques as well as future directions that could be envisaged to shed new light on the healthy and diseased brain.
