Using Light to Measure Brain Activity: EROS Optical Brain Imaging Demonstration

Event-Related Optical Signal (EROS) technology allows researchers to use light to get a nearly real-time look at the neuronal activity inside the human brain. Neuroscientist Carrie Brumback Peltz demonstrates this ground-breaking technique for imaging the brain.

Brumback Peltz is a former graduate student from professors Monica Fabiani and Gabriele Gratton's Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the Beckman Institute. She is currently a post-doctoral scholar at the University of California at Irvine.
