In conclusion, the data discussed here demonstrate that light is not merely a medium for passively visualizing structures and events but rather a tool to be used actively for manipulating those structures and events. The approaches described above represent enabling technology that has wide application in neurobiology. We are convinced that the introduction of this powerful new technology will invariably stimulate new, as well as new types of, experiments.
