Neurosurgery news article titled “Drowsy Mice: Induced Spindling and Thalamic Bursting Studied via an Optogenetic Technique” discusses the effects of the thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN) on thalamocortical neurons. Michael Halassa, M.D. and researchers have now demonstrated a new optogenetics-based technique specifically designed to explore TRN effects on TCR firing properties.
