The Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (CNCB) is an autonomous research centre embedded in the stimulating world of the University of Oxford.
Optogenetics combines genetic targeting of specific cells or proteins with either optical imaging or optical control of these targets.
Gero Miesenböck will receive the Heinrich Wieland Prize 2015 for his conception and first experimental demonstration of optogenetics.
Neurons do not operate in isolation. They function within circuits of often staggering complexity in which each cell is influenced by—and influences—many others.
