Creating and developing new techniques for visualizing and regulating the activity of neural circuits will bring about a better understanding of the normal function of the nervous system and much more effective treatments for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. DIBS is actively engaged in bringing together investigators with a broad range of expertise in the biological sciences, biomedical engineering, chemistry, and physics to develop the next generation of tools that will make it possible to monitor and regulate the activity of functionally identified populations of neurons with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution.
