We celebrate 10 years of optogenetics research with Karl Deisseroth

We had the pleasure to celebrate the 10th anniversary of optogenetics research with Karl Deisseroth, who delivered the Keynote and Public lecture at the recent Frontiers in Neurophotonics Symposium.  FINS2015 was held October 3-6 in Québec city.

On the picture, Karl Deisseroth, Yves De Koninck and Valentin Nägerl celebrate with a 10th anniversary cake.  

Read a special edition of Nature Neuroscience about the 10 years of optogenetics research, or read the landmark paper describing the use of light-responsive Channelrhodopsin2 to control activity of neurons in the 2005 paper by Karl Deisseroth and his team:Millisecond-timescale, genetically targeted optical control of neural activity..
