Magnetogenetics goes deep into the brain. “A major step toward developing a ‘dream tool’ for remotely controlling neural circuits”

The ability to control different aspects and activities with magnetic fields is no longer restricted to the mischief of comic book villains. Using synthetic biology to figure out just what neurons do has always been a tricky task, because it has been limited by requiring invasive surgery (optogenetics) or slow on-off kinetics (drugs). But…
