Precise Spatiotemporal Control of Optogenetic Activation Using an Acousto-Optic Device

Abstract

Light activation and inactivation of neurons by optogenetic techniques has emerged as an important tool for studying neural circuit function. To achieve a high resolution, new methods are being developed to selectively manipulate the activity of individual neurons. Here, we report that the combination of an acousto-optic device (AOD) and single-photon laser… (More)
