• Lena Ting and Lucas McKay conduct laboratory-based movement studies in people with Parkinson's disease to identify new physiologic markers of fall risk

  • Researchers have for the first time precisely manipulated the bursting activity of cells in the thalamus.

  • Researchers have created a technology called the optoclamp which closes the loop in optogenetic systems.
