15 minutes about Optogenetics - Evgeny Resnik

16.11.2017, Munich

Our brain processes information from the surrounding world and drives our emotions and behavior. Despite many years of research we still lack understanding how billions of neurons work together to enable this driving function. This lack of knowledge is to a large extent due to our limited ability to control activity of individual neurons. Optogenetics, a new technique capable of controlling the brain with light, has revolutionized neuroscience and opens new ways to treat neurological disorders in humans.
