Ed Boyden: National Science Foundation interview

The National Science Foundation interviewed Ed Boyden about his study published in the January 7 2010 issue of Nature. Results: Boyden's team developed a powerful new class of tools to reversibly shut down brain activity using different colors of light. When targeted to specific neurons, these tools could potentially lead to new treatments for the abnormal brain activity associated with disorders such as chronic pain, epilepsy, brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease.
