Sinopsis

Discovered little more than a decade ago, optogenetics - a revolutionary technique combining genetic and optical methods to observe and control the function of neurons - is now a widely used research tool. Optogenetics-driven research has led to insights into Parkinson's disease and other neurological and psychiatric disorders. With contributions from leaders and innovators from both academia and industry, this volume explores the discovery and application of optogenetics, from the basic science to its potential clinical use. Chapters cover a range of optogenetics applications, including for brain circuits, plasticity, memory, learning, sleep, vision and neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases. Providing authoritative coverage of the huge potential that optogenetics research carries, this is an ideal resource for researchers and graduate students, as well as for those working in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and in a clinical setting.

The first text to examine in full the discovery and application of optogenetics techniques, from the basic science to potential clinical use
Features contributions from experts from both academia and industry, covering the use of optogenetics in model organisms, opsin biological tools, and applications in neurobiology and neurodegenerative diseases
Places special emphasis on the development of a new generation of tools for the in vivo imaging of learning, neuro-psychiatric diseases and behavior
