The development of innovative methods that can noninvasively manipulate neural cells in the brain has been expected for circuit manipulations of the nervous system. In this research proposal, we will try to develop novel methods to selectively and efficiently manipulate neural cells by a wireless power transfer system. We will apply these light-mediated control methods to analyze neural circuit mechanisms underlying meta-learning processes.
