"It paves the way for new therapies that could target a number of psychiatric disorders," said MIT neuroscientist Ed Boyden, who led the research with postdoctoral fellow Xue Han.
Xue Han , Ph.D. is Helen Hay Whitney Fellow, MIT McGovern Institute and MIT Media Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
objective is to develop radical new genetic, molecular, and optical neurotechnologies and application protocols to treat neurological and psychiatric diseases.
