NIH Grant Funds Research Using Wireless Micro LEDs to Investigate Brain Disorders

The developing field of optogenetics uses micro-LEDs and light activated
genes to control individual brain cells. For example, scientists can take a
light-activated gene targeted at a particular type of neuron and insert the
gene into a mouse. Then, shining light into the animal’s brain can either
get neurons to fire or inhibit their …
