Functional imaging of biological tissues has seen significant activity in combination with optical techniques operating in the near infrared. This workshop will be centered on the methodology and analysis necessary to create images using these new techniques. In particular it will target the generation of images using these new generation imagers using either endogenous optical absorption (haemoglobin) or exogenous contrast agents such as molecular probes. The workshop is aimed at students and researchers in functional neuroimaging. Specialists in the field of optical and hybrid methods will lecture on the recent avenues in acquisition, production of images for functional imaging.
