This is the fourth installment of the "Genetic Manipulation of Neuronal Activity" conference at Janelia. Presentations will highlight recent advances in the development of new genetic reagents for the exogenous control of neural circuit activity, including naturally evolved light-gated ion channels and pumps, mutagenized temperature-sensitive synaptic transmission components, rationally designed photo-switches, magnetoreceptors and "orthogonal" drug/receptor pairs, among others. We are bringing together leaders in the field to review progress in the design and use of current tools and, more importantly, to discuss the development of novel tools and their potential applications.

Registration for this meeting is closed.
