Cause neuron excitation or inhibition using laser light to the target cells within the body that have been genetically altered to react
Alongside the growth of DNA sequencing, optogenetics is growing complimentary to this. Laser light is being used to the target cells within the body that have been genetically altered to react and cause neuron excitation or inhibition. Using this combination of neuron targeting, protein selection, genetic modification, and selective highly focused light, great benefits over previous neuron manipulation techniques, which relied on electrical stimulation, can be achieved. This technique of optogenetics is a growing area of scientific research that controls and studies the behavior of neurons by the illumination with light. To provide illumination, the use of lasers has a number of benefits:
