disorders gave hope into alleviating symptoms, however, practically none of them can be considered cures. Using ultra-precise control, scientists are able to dial in information precisely where they would want the gene to go. An important aspect is questioning how this process is able to optimize. The question goes into how scientists can install proteins from solar-like cells into neurons, and the neurons containing the molecule would be activated by light; the neighboring cells not containing the molecule would be undisturbed by the light. In the pre-clinical study, mice were tested by using optical fibers that are connected to lasers to drive electrical energy from light energy in the neurons. They went about this by using a certain alga that swims in the wild that navigates towards light in order to photosynthesize optimally; it senses light with an eye spot which works unlike the human eye. In the alga’s membrane, it contains proteins called channelrhdopsins that can convert light energy into electricity. When blue light

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
