Optogenetics was developed by Scientific Council Member Karl Deisseroth, M.D., Ph.D., with the support of a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant in 2005. The new technology uses light to make neurons fire one at a time, giving researchers extraordinary control over specific brain circuits in living animals. Now in use at over 1,000 laboratories, the new method is enabling identification of the mechanisms that give rise to depression, anxiety, PTSD and other brain and behavior disorders.
