Quotes

...ulations," Ifat Levy, an assistant professor in comparative medicine and neurobiology at Yale School of Medicine, said in a university news release. "It could also help us explain differences in risk attitudes based in part on structural brain differences."
...achieve sensing of neuronal activity with light rather than traditional electrophysiology, but this goal had a few prerequisites," Gradinaru says. "The sensor had to be fast, since action potentials happen in just milliseconds. Also, the sensor had to be very bright so that the signal could be detected with existing microscopy setups. And you need to be able to simultaneously study the multiple neurons that make up a neural network."
"It's reassuring to hear that with follow-up testing, the vast majority of these cases can be identified as coming from a different cause" Dr. Shannon MacDonald told Reuters Health
"There are now clinical trials that would have been funded five to seven years ago, which won't be funded until the preclinical studies are done in a way that is actually believable" she says
