Artificial Optogenetic TRN Stimulation of C. elegans
Authors:  Ithai Rabinowitch, Millet Treinin and Jihong Bai, date: 10/20/2016, view: 6249, Q&A: 0
Optogenetics is a powerful tool for manipulating neuronal activity with high temporal and spatial precision. In the nematode C. elegans optogentics is especially useful and easy to apply. This is because C. elegans is translucent, ...
