Targeting specific neurons for personalized next-gen therapeutics
Technology summaryNeurological and cognitive disorders such as epilepsy, pain, fear and anxiety, depression, addiction, apnea and tremors can result from aberrant activity of defined subsets of neurons, including an imbalance of excitatory versus inhibitory signaling. However, it is difficult to alter neuron function selectively in the brain for research...
