Case Study

Studying Circadian Rhythm Circuitry with Optogenetics

This case study explores how optogenetics is being used to modulate circadian rhythms. Researchers at Texas A&M University utilize wireless in-vivo optogenetics to investigate the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) and its impact on sleep-wake cycles and overall health.

  • Innovative Techniques: Discover how wireless optogenetics enables the precise modulation of circadian rhythms in mice.
  • Addressing Challenges: Learn about the solutions implemented to conduct chronic studies with minimal disruption to the animals.
  • Future Applications: Explore potential applications in drug abuse studies and other behavioral research.
