corporisfabrica:

A relatively young scientific method, optogenetics allows the manipulation of cell activity using light, enabling teams to control and monitor tissue in vivo even at the scale of complex organisms such as mice and other mammals.
Through this method, it is possible to apply changes to the behaviour of tissue and observe the effects in an organism at the speed of light. The method relies on genetically inserted channel proteins in the cell walls of optogenetic animals which are sensitive to specific frequencies of light. It is even possible, through insertion of the channel genes behind certain genetic ‘promoters,’ to isolate the expression of the channels to specific areas of the body such as a brain region so as to concentrate the effects on an area under study while preventing channels appearing elsewhere.
Thereafter, exposure to light can open or close these channels, allowing or preventing secretions of chemicals such as neurotransmitters; different effects can be obtained independently or simultaneously by using multiple frequencies of light from an implanted optrode (pictured above) and corresponding channels. The aforementioned device combines a laser emitter and electrode, which can simultaneously monitor neuron activity as well as administer pulses of laser light when needed.
What does all of this accomplish? Control to this extent allows research of living brains, the ways in which they function and the ways in which they fail to function. Right now, optogenetics is being applied to better our understanding of some of the most terrible neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and chronic anxiety.

a whole lot more is lost if you cut a giant ass hole through it
