Optogenetik

Plenary / Keynote & Panel
in englischer Sprache

Die Optogenetik nützt lichtgesteuerte „Schalter“ in genetisch modifizierten Zellen, um etwa die elektrischen Impulse von Nervenzellen zu kontrollieren. Es lassen sich damit gewisse neurale Funktionen fernsteuern und hochkomplexe neurale Schaltkreise und Prozesse wie Gedanken, Wahrnehmungen oder Gefühle im Gehirn erkunden.

Waynflete Professor of Physiology and Director, Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University of Oxford Abstract
In optogenetics, cells are genetically modified to become controllable by light. The development of optogenetics addressed a deep and longstanding scientific challenge. In order to understand how the brain works, it is crucial for scientists to control neural activity-and to do so precisely, by targeting well-defined groups of nerve cells, while observing the consequences for organismal physiology and behavior. We achieve this goal by instructing specific cells to produce light-activated proteins that modulate the cells' electrical signals.
In a decade and a half, optogenetic control of neuronal activity has developed from a far-fetched idea to a widely used experimental technique. My talk will recount how this happened, drawing on the earliest and latest results from my lab. To illustrate what is now possible, I will present recent work on the regulation of sleep.
