Illuminating the brain

Public lecture by neuroscientist Dr Karl Deisseroth, 2018 Laureate for Advanced Technology

Dr Deisseroth has been a pioneer in ‘optogenetics’ – a breakthrough method for studying the brain in which neurons can be activated or inhibited on the millisecond scale using light.

The lecture will be preceded by an official welcome from the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Professor Louise Richardson.
