Is this related to the work on optogenetics? I'm just starting to read about this...
absolutely, we could probably merge the threads.
Deisseroth, who came up with the term optogenetics, was featured along side Lim and Scanziani in the HHMI article I picked this up from.
Here's Deisseroth's original paper:
I'm currently examining the Morris Lecar model, which still seems to have a lot of open parameters in it. It seems this kind of technology would make testing the consequences of the coupled nonlinear dynamics much, much easier and may even provide insight to reasonable parameter ranges.
