Optically probing the neural basis of perception

Hillel Adesnik, Ph.D

Assistant Professor of Neurobiology, University of California, Berkeley

Host: Mu Zhou (Sudhof Lab)

Abstract

I will present a new approach to control the activity of ensembles of neuron in the brain with single cell resolution, millisecond precision, and in full 3D. By engineering new opsins optimized for two photon holographic optogenetics, and developing a new optical system capable of stimulating hundreds of neurons distributed in a large volume of the somatosensory cortex, we aim to simultaneously write in and read out the neural codes of elementary sensory percepts.
