Module 4A: In Vivo Applications of Optogenetics
In this presentation, Lisa Gunaydin will introduce some of the common uses of optogenetics in an in vivo setting. Specifically, Gunaydin will:
- Describe different purposes of optogenetics in vivo, such as to manipulate behavior and test functional connectivity.
- Introduce the role of combining optogenetics with other methods, such as neural recordings or imaging.
- Introduce translational applications of optogenetics to develop new therapeutic paradigms.
After watching this presentation, you should be able to describe several types of in vivo experiments in which optogenetics can be useful.
