Paper Abstract

In this presentation, we show our preliminary results which is related to neurons activation in vivo by laser. A laser scanning system was adopted to guide laser beam to an assigned fly and an assigned position. A 473-nm laser can be a heat punishment source to restrain a wild-type fly’s moving area. Furthermore, neurons in optogenetics transgene flies can be triggered by the blue laser in this system.
