Kozorovitskiy Lab Publishes Groundbreaking Collaborative Optogenetics Research

May 10, 2021

Professor Genia Kozorovitskiy's groundbreaking collaborative research "Wireless multilateral devices for optogenetic studies of individual and social behaviors" was published today in the journal Nature Neuroscience. This study "...is the first optogenetics paper exploring social interactions within groups of animals, which was previously impossible with current technologies." Working in collaboration with McCormick professor John A. Rogers and his lab, researchers developed a "first-of-its-kind ultraminiature, wireless, battery-free and fully implantable device that uses light to activate neurons," allowing researchers to program and deprogram mice to interact with each other in real time.
