Neurophotonics covers advances in optical technology applicable to study of the brain and their impact on basic and clinical neuroscience applications.


The journal began publication in May 2014. New articles are continuously added to the current issue throughout each quarter as they are approved for publication.


All articles will be freely available through 2015.
