Interdisciplinary Neurobehavioral Core (INBC)
Medizinische Fakultät Heidelberg


The INBC offers the most recent version of optogenetics assembly.

Optogenetics permits to silence or activate single neurons, their projections or entire circuits via photo-illumination with an extraordinarily high degree of specificity and temporal precision in behaving animals. The system can be combined with any other behavioral tests. Experts in this field can give assistance to the users (Prof. Dr. Rohini Kuner's group, Institute of Pharmacology and Prof. Dr. Thomas Kuner's group, Institute for Anatomy and Cell Biology).
