Abstract
The research described here aims at a design and fabrication of a light emitting module for a mobile optogenetic device for animals that are freely moving in the IntelliCage system cages. The device is designed to stimulate selected brain areas of the animal with light. The approach described here is based on a LED chip attached to the tip of a cannula which will be directly implanted into a mouse’s brain. The device has been fabricated and tested in a laboratory. In addition, we have observed optogenetic effect on the slice of mice brain tissue in vitro stimulated with our implants.
