    Trends Mol Med 17:197-206. 2011
    ..Finally, we survey the application of optogenetic tools to studying functional neuroanatomy, behavior and the etiology and treatment of various neurological disorders...

    Luis de Lecea
    Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 71:1046-52. 2012
    ..Here, we discuss the recent results of these experiments and propose future use of this approach as a way to understand the complex dynamics of neural circuits controlling arousal and arousal-related behaviors...

    MATTHEW E CARTER
    Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:E2635-44. 2012
    ..This coupling of distinct neuronal systems can be generalized to other hypothalamic integrator nuclei with downstream effector/output populations in the brain...
  5. pmc Tuning arousal with optogenetic modulation of locus coeruleus neurons
    MATTHEW E CARTER
    Neurosciences Program, Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA
    Nat Neurosci 13:1526-33. 2010
    ..These results suggest that the locus coeruleus is finely tuned to regulate organismal arousal and that bursts of noradrenergic overexcitation cause behavioral attacks that resemble those seen in people with neuropsychiatric disorders...

    MATTHEW E CARTER
    Neurosciences Program, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
    J Neurosci 29:10939-49. 2009
    ..Collectively, these results suggest that the Hcrt system promotes wakefulness throughout the light/dark period by activating multiple downstream targets, which themselves are inhibited with increased sleep pressure...
