Optogenetics is a new technology, so full of potential and exciting implications. Pioneered at MIT and Stanford, the technique allows control of specific neurons in the brain, central nervous system, and other parts of the body using light.

Today, January 21, 2015, BioOptics World will host one of the researchers who has played a leading role in the development of optogenetics in a webcast. Designed to review the basics and update you on developments, the presentation will also answer questions about how optogenetics might work for you.

Join us at 1pm ET as Christian Wentz, one of Forbes' "30 under 30" and Hertz Foundation Myhrvold Family Fellow in MIT's Synthetic Neurobiology Group (headed by Ed Boyden), presents the latest on this fascinating technique!
