Abstract

Our aim is to establish a novel combined acousto-optical method for in vivo imaging of the human retina with the two-photon microscope. In this paper we present modeling results based on eye model samples constructed with parameters measured on patients. We used effectively the potential of the electronic compensation offered by the acousto-optic lenses to avoid the use of adaptive optical correction. Simulation predicted lateral resolution between 1.6 μm and 3 μm on the retina. This technology allows the visualization of single cells and promises real time measuring of neural activity in individual neurons, neural segments and cell assemblies with 30-100 μs temporal and subcellular spatial resolution.
