node:field_content_summary | entity_field

In recent years, a number of genetic reagents have been developed for the exogenous control of neural circuit activity. Naturally evolved light-gated ion channels and pumps, mutagenized temperature-sensitive synaptic transmission components, rationally designed photo-switches, and "orthogonal" drug—receptor pairs are only a few of the novel technologies unveiled. This meeting will bring together leaders in the field to highlight recent progress in tool development and applications.
