Optogenetics: Controlling the Brain with Light

Continuing the topic of Mind Reading, Thought Control and Neuro Marketing I am posting this YouTube video of Karl Deisseroth who is pioneering bold new treatments for depression and other psychiatric diseases.

In this short talk, Deisseroth gives a thoughtful and awe-inspiring overview of his Stanford University lab’s groundbreaking research in “optogenetics” while not hiding the number of philosophical, ethical, moral and clinical implications of his research.
