Abstract

We present three-dimensional diffuse optical tomography of the hemodynamic response to somatosensory stimulation in a rat. These images show the feasibility of volumetrically imaging the functional response to brain activity with diffuse light. A combination of positional optode calibration and contrast-to-noise ratio weighting was found to improve imaging performance.
