20:00 EDT 6 Sep 2018 | AAAS

(Nanoscope Technologies) Nanoscope is awarded a major Bioengineering Research grant from NIH to advance Bioluminescent Multi-Characteristic Opsin (bMCO) for simultaneous optical stimulation and large-scale monitoring of brain activities. The team aims to evaluate restoration of cortical activities by bMCO using head-mountable camera upon ambient-light activatable MCO-sensitization of degenerated retina. For individuals who have lost optic nerve or eye, patterned optical stimulation of visual cortex by bMCO technology could directly create visual images in the brain.
