Lin-Li Liu Award Candidate In situ surficial patterning for guidance of geometrical neurite outgrowth on glass substrate


Neuronal model cells (PC12) were cultured on micropatterned domains formed by femtosecond laser. The neurite outgrowth was observed to be geometrically limited inside the certain domain. We succeeded to dynamically control the neurite growth by applying surficial modification of substrate during cell culturing by employing the same femtosecond laser.

Kuo-Jen Hsu Award Candidate All-in-focus microscopy for brain functional imaging


We build an all-in-focus microscope imaging system for Drosophila brain functional study. Combining with existing anatomical connectome, we can further establish functional connectome. Moreover, the compatibility with commercial microscope immediately provides neuroscientists a powerful tool for brain functional studies.

Chao-Che Lee Award Candidate Detection of Migraine by Using Near-infrared Spectroscopy


Migraine is a common neurological disorder. In this study, we use near-infrared spectroscopy system to evaluate the vasomotor reactivity of ictal and interictal migraine patients. The correlation between the changes of hemoglobin concentration in prefrontal cortex and neurological disorder characterized by headaches is demonstrated in this study.

Shun-Jen Hsiao Award Candidate Improved Laser Scanning Optical Resolution Photoacoustic Microscopy Using a Focused Ultrasound Transducer


Compared with that using an unfocused transducer, here we propose a novel focused-ultrasound-transducer based laser-scanning optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy to improve signal-to-noise ratio and mitigate spatial-impulse-response effect, thereby enhancing the image contrast and axial resolution, respectively, while retaining the fast scanning capability and minimizing the loss in the field of view.
