Non-Image-forming impact of light on subcortical structures
In my research project, we aim at establishing the fundamental roles of subcortical areas of the brain in mediating the Non image Forming (NIF) impact of light. It will further assess age-related change in the impact of light on brain activity. The present research project is highly innovative in terms of techniques, with high field 7Tesla MRI, novel MRI and fMRI acquisition and analysis schemes specifically dedicated towards the brainstem with high resolution. Original analyses using intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) responses in rodents and metameric illumination.
