Quantum Dots Control Brain Cells For the First Time

Quantum Dots Control Brain Cells For the First Time

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In an unlikely marriage of quantum physics and neuroscience, tiny particles called quantum dots have been used to control brain cells for the first time.

Having such control over the brain could one day provide a non-invasive treatment for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression and epilepsy. In the nearer term, quantum dots could be used to treat blindness by reactivating damaged retinal cells.
