Available technologies in the fields of wireless transmission and powering allow the construction of lightweight headstages that can be controlled and can transmit data remotely. Recent efforts have yielded several miniaturized wirelessly controlled light sources for optogenetics integrating LEDs.
Battery powered devices
[Here description of the work by the team of Hajime Hirase]. .
University of Washington and Seattle Children's Research Institute introduces NeuroFly, a fully autonomous battery powered wireless device for optogenetic stimulation using LED based systems and read out of behavior. Make inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
UCLA Capstone Group F
The 2015-16 Bioengineering Capstone Group F at the University of California, Los Angeles created the CerebraLux, an open-source, wireless optogenetic stimulator for their Senior design project. As an open-source project, the stimulator is free to create and use, and we encourage other laboratories to improve and build upon our design. Full performance specifications and all design files for the device can be found here.
Wirelessly powered devices
Kendall Research Systems
Kendall Research Systems, a spin-out company from Ed Boyden's lab sells fully wireless LED illumination devices with or without integrated optical fibers. The basis of this technology is described in a paper by Wentz et al .
