Experimental setup. a Sketch of a pig brain’s cross-section illustrating the position of the brain stem, cerebrum, and cerebellum. The structures shown here have symmetric counterparts in the other half of the brain. b Cuvettes with dissected cerebral tissue: Brain stem, cerebrum, and cerebellum, respectively. c Thermal image of a cuvette containing cerebral tissue irradiated with a NIR laser (red arrow) for 25 min. The region of interest (white box) encloses the pixels analyzed to find the maximum temperature which is denoted T. The color bar denotes absolute temperatures
