    Detecting action-potential-correlated scattering changes in single neurons
    Optical coherence microscopy has potential as a tool for noninvasively measuring electrical activity in single neurons based on changes in their intrinsic optical properties. A central goal of neuroscience is to understand how groups of neurons interact to give rise to the myriad functions of the nervous system. This task is extremely difficult in part because of the technical challenge of recording the electrical activity of many neurons simultaneously without disturbing their environment. Although several methods exist, new techniques are in strong demand. One promising approach is based on noninvasively detecting changes in the optical properties of neural tissue that ...
