Two proteins: Equipping cortical neurons with a calcium sensor (red) and an opsin protein (green) enables researchers to study neural circuits in mice. A newly engineered protein for optogenetic experiments requires less light than traditional techniques to excite or inactivate neurons, thereby reducing thermal damage to brain tissue. The protein, described in eLife in May, […]
