    Refractive index measurement of acute rat brain tissue slices using optical coherence tomography
    An optical coherence tomography (OCT) system employing a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) mirror was used to measure the refractive index (RI) of anatomically different regions in acute brain tissue slices, in which viability was maintained. RI was measured in white-matter and grey-matter regions, including the cerebral cortex, putamen, hippocampus, thalamus and corpus callosum. The RI in the corpus callosum was found to be ~4% higher than the RIs in other regions. Changes in RI with tissue deformation were also measured in the cerebral cortex and corpus callosum under uniform compression (20-80% strain). For 80% strain, measured RIs increased nonlinearly by up ...
