Leonardo Sacconi

Researcher at the National Institute of Optics in Florence, Italy


Leonardo Sacconi received the Master degree in Physics in 2001 at the University of Florence. He, then, moved to Trento, where he obtained the PhD in Physics. Visiting scientist at the Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA, in the group of Watt W. Webb. From 2005 to 2011 he started new research lines on functional imaging of neuronal networks at European Laboraotry for Non-linear Spectrscopy (LENS) in the group of Francesco S. Pavone.

He is now a Researcher at the National Institute of Optics in Florence and group leader of the Cardiac Imaging at LENS. Cardiac Imaging group is developing innovative imaging methodologies to increase the understanding of cardiac physiology.

Whole brain optical imaging

Abstract. Nowadays, there are several imaging techniques offering a complementary approach to visualize intact neural networks on large areas. Each of those offers a different strategy and furnish complementary information on the role of neural components. We will describe different approaches enabling to move from single neuron details to whole brain imaging, connecting short range structural information to long range one. In particular, some examples of correlative microscopies, combining linear and non linear techniques will also be described.
