Researchers find that, at least in rats, when they shine a laser light on a region of the brain associated with impulse control and decision-making, they can turn cocaine-seeking behavior off or on.
The Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System includes an eyeglass-mounted camera, a portable video processing unit, and an array of electrodes implanted onto the retina to allow the patient to detect light and dark.
UCLA researchers say their optical microscope can detect rare cells with sensitivity of one part per million -- in real time.
