Abstract

Animal studies are often used to test the feasibility and effectiveness of neuroscience research ideas. Optogenetics is a state-of-the-art technique that allows researchers to control brain activity with light. Current methods are limited as they use tethered setups with the animal in a fixed position, resulting in stress and reduced animal welfare. Hence, an untethered setup is highly desirable.
