Optogenetics – New Potentials for Electrophysiology
- 18 Downloads
This review addresses the new potentials opened up by the development of optogenetic methods and the advantages of combining these with conventional electrophysiological approaches in experimental studies to resolve a wide range of neurophysiological tasks. This review includes descriptions of the main difficulties and nuances in studies using optogenetic methods and examples of technical solutions to provide for simultaneous optostimulation and recording of neuron activity.
