Ed Boyden ens ensenya com, introduint a les neurones gens de proteïnes sensibles a la llum, pot activar o desactivar determinades neurones amb implants de fibra òptica. Amb aquest nivell de control sense precedents, ha aconseguit curar ratolins de trastorns similars a l'estrés posttraumàtic i certes formes de ceguesa. A l'horitzó: les pròtesis neuronals. El moderador Juan Enriquez fa una petita entrevista al final.
