Optical topography is a method for visualization of cortical activity. Ways of improving the spatial resolution of the topographical image with three arrangements of optical fibres are discussed. A distribution of sensitivity is obtained from the phantom experiment, and used to reconstruct topographical images of an activation area of the brain with the fibres in each arrangement. The correlations between the activated area and the corresponding topographical images are obtained, and the effective arrangement of the optical fibres for improved resolution is discussed.
