Diffusible photoswitchable glutamate analogue presented in new paper

02.09.2015 10:58

Laprell et al. synthesized a diffusible photoswitchable glutamate analogue, which can be used to mimic synaptic input by one- or two-photon activation. The functionality of their photoswitch was validated by local drug...[more]

New paper with juxtacellular recordings in freely moving rats
