The second in the series of PDN Masterclasses & Techniques Colloquia will take place on Wednesday 19th at 5.30 pm in the tea room of the Gurdon Institute. On this session Martin O'Neill, Bill Stauffer (Wolfram Schultz´s lab) and Olivia Shipton (Ole Paulsen´s lab) will be speaking about "Optogenetics in neuroscience: Controlling brain and behaviour with light".

You can immerse yourself in the subject by reading:
