Optogenetics

Plenary / Keynote & Panel
english language

Optogenetics uses light-controlled “switches” within genetically modified cells, e.g. to control the electrical impulses of nerve cells. In this way, certain neural functions can be controlled remotely and highly complex neural circuits and processes in the brain such as thoughts, perceptions or feelings can be explored.
