Neuroengineering blog by a pro

Ed Boyden, leader of the Neuroengineering and Neuromedia Group at MIT, has just started a blog.

I wrote about some of Boyden’s work earlier this year. His is one of several groups that have used a light-sensitive bacterial protein called channelrhodopsin to develop an “optical switch” that can activate or inhibit neurons.
