Light Scattering in Brain Tissue Using Monte Carlo Method
As discussed in the Introduction, optogenetics uses light to drive or visualise neural activity. Being able to quantify and predict how light is scattered is crucial for optogenetics since light delivered to the neuron will determine the activity of neurons. Any superfluous light, delivered to the neurons that were not meant to be there for the particular study, will lead to erroneous results.
