Module 3A: Optogenetic Applications in Acute Brain Slices
In this presentation, Patrick Rothwell will cover why and when to use optogenetics in acute brain slices, also called ex vivo. Specifically, Rothwell will:
- Identify scientific questions that can be addressed using optogenetics in ex vivo preparations.
- Compare optogenetics to alternative ex vivo methodologies.
After watching this presentation, you should be able to better understand applications of optogenetic approaches in ex vivo preparations.
