Research interests

Professor Lesage's research activities pertain to the development of novel imaging techniques for neuronal conditions. These techniques are tested with both, humans (diffuse optical imaging of the brain during cognitive tasks and study of the neuronal metabolism) and small animals (study of neuro-degenerative diseases by means of transgenics and molecular fluorescent probes).

  • Diffuse optical imaging and molecular imaging
  • Two photon microscopy
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Photo-acoustic techniques
  • Neuronal imaging
  • Image reconstruction and inverse problems
