Optogenetics

Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination. - John Dewey -

Electrical Stimulation

Burn the fact that the world does in necessity and buy. - Thomas Alva Edison -

Micro-PET/CT

The work of science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions. - John Ruskin -

Electrophysiology

I have tried 99 times and have failed, but on the 100th time came sucess. - Albert Einstein -

Optogenetics is the combination of genetics and optics for controlling specific cells of living tissues. We aim to find the motor circuit dynamics in awake state by using 18 F- FDG PET in combination with optogenetic stimulation and to determine the downstream effect in motor network to predict the possible formation of brain plasticity in cortical injury of motor cortex.
