报告摘要:Optogenetics is revolutionizing the neuroscience field. Combining the cutting-edge optics and transgenic technologies, optogenetics has shown its great advantages, especially the biological specificity and operative feasibility, in the study of brain functions. The application of optogenetics in cochlea is among the most attractive topics in auditory neuroscience. My study attempts to understand the process of optogenetic activation of spiral ganglion neurons, aiming to 1) precisely control the excitation of spiral ganglion neurons; 2) develop new assessment approaches for testing the functional integration of regenerated auditory neurons; 3) examine the idea of a cochlear implant based on optogenetics. In my talk, I will briefly go through the progress in cochlear optogenetics, and present our most recent findings from a novel transgenic mouse model.
