18:24 · Filmed March 2011 at TED2011 · Subtitles available in 29 languages

Ed Boyden menunjukkan bagaimana dia dapat mengaktifkan atau mematikan neuron tertentu secara selektif melalui implan serat optik dengan memasukkan gen protein peka cahaya ke dalam sel-sel otak. Dengan tingkat pengendalian yang belum pernah dilihat sebelumnya ini, dia berhasil menyembuhkan tikus dari PTSD dan beberapa jenis kebutaan. Pengembangan ke depan: syaraf prostetik. Pembawa acara Juan Enriquez memberi penutup dan tanya jawab singkat.

At the MIT Media Lab, Ed Boyden leads the Synthetic Neurobiology Group, which invents technologies to reveal how cognition and emotion arise from brain networks — and to enable systematic repair of disorders such as epilepsy and PTSD. Full bio
