Lighting Up the Brain: The Science of Optogenetics


Discover the growing-and groundbreaking-field of optogenetics, a biological technique that uses light to control cells in living tissue, especially neurons in the brain. Optogenetics' primary use is to increase our understanding of biochemical processes in live organisms, yet it may someday be used to treat diseases such as blindness and neural disorders such as Parkinson's and depression. This fascinating title introduces readers to the field of neuroscience and the frontiers of modern brain research and optogenetics.
