The prospects for high resolution optical brain imaging: the magnetic resonance perspective.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Various analogs of NMR and MRI are now technically possible in optics; specifically, high-resolution laser-pulse shaping and complex pulse sequence generation with well-defined phase shifts has been demonstrated. Here we summarize this technology and discuss the potential for these methods to enhance optical functional imaging, competing with (and surpassing?) what is possible by functional MRI.
