Mechanisms for the light-cell interface in optical cell stimulation

Proc. International Conference on Applied Optics and Photonics
Type: Zeitschriftenaufsatz (non-reviewed)
Advances in optical neurostimulation have shown advantages over electrical approaches by translating precise optical stimuli into electrophysiological signals on a single cell level. Using a neuroblastoma cell line, we studied the effects of different optical stimulation methods. The different strategies were evaluated to make a first attempt at assessing the feasibility of an optical hearing aid.
