Optogenetic methods use light to modulate the activities of target cells in vivo. By improving inter- and intracellular trafficking of light-sensitive switch proteins called opsins, Gradinaru et al. (2010) have developed a new generation of optogenetic tools capable of regulating the activity of targeted neurons with exquisite precision and efficiency.
