Resum
Optogenetics, the developing field of research that uses light-switchable biochemical tools in a sophisticated technological approach to monitor or control neural function, is rapidly evolving with the discovery and development of novel microbial rhodopsins. Light-absorbing membrane proteins, as tools for brain research, are promoting new applications within the discipline of optogenetics. Light-gated rhodopsin ion channels with better intrinsic light sensitivity and improved resolution are need...
