Neuroscience is the multidisciplinary branch of biology in which the fundamental properties of neurons, the organization of neural networks, and their behavioral and sensory functional products are studied. Because the functions of neural networks are inextricably linked to their spatial organization, neuroscience research is heavily dependent on a variety of imaging techniques. For cellular and tissue level investigations, fluorescence microscopy is the most instructive and widely applicable of these techniques. Optogenetic techniques provides researchers with ways of externally modulating neuronal network function using light as an intermediary.
