Scientific Reports publication with Sanyi's contribution

Wednesday, 6 July, 2022

A new manuscript was published in Scientific Reports by Sandor’s first co-authorship

contribution, investigating the neuromodulatory effect of infrared illumination.

The principal investigator of the project was Zoltán Fekete, a senior research fellow of

Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics.

Unfortunately, there is limited information on the effect of infrared light on neurons,

including physiological and pathological regards. The aim of the research was to create

and to validate a microscale implantable optrode, that can record electrophysiological

signals of neurons and to modulate their activity using invisible light, while the brain

tissue damage is minimalized. The sharp tip implant was effectively used to suppress

the firing rate of neuronal populations and according to histological staining it did not

result in significant changes in cell density.
