The Boas Lab develops novel optical methods and applies them principally to study the brain. We have recently expanded to complement our suite of technologies with high-speed functional ultrasound and are considering integration with photo-acoustics. Our technologies are used for measuring brain function and physiology on microscopic to macroscopic length scales and are applied in species ranging from mice to humans. Our applications have been focused on measuring hemodynamic responses to brain activity in humans and rodents, neuro-metabolic-vascular coupling, oxygen delivery through the cerebral microvascular network, tissue oxygen metabolism, and the impact of disease and injury including stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and aging.
