Working at the interface between engineering and neuroscience, Professor Simon Schultz and Dr Konstantin Nikolic at Imperial College London are developing tools to help us understand the intricate workings of the brain. Combining a revolutionary technology – optogenetics – with computational neuroscience, the team are developing powerful tools to study the real-time physiology of individual neurons and their function. Their work is unlocking the complex secrets of the circuitry of the brain and has significance for debilitating neural disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
