Publications on functional ultrasound

For over 10 years, researchers around the world and Iconeus engineers have been developing the technology of functional ultrasound, and using it to gain interesting insights into brain function. Many of their results have been published in high-profile journals such as Nature, Science Translational Medicine and Neuron.

Below you’ll find a comprehensive (but not exhaustive) list of publications covering all aspects of functional ultrasound.
