Perspectives towards the magnetic control of the nervous system


Manipulating cell signaling pathways with magnetic nanoactuators is an emerging method for patient-derived cell therapies of neurodegenerative disorders. While curative pharmacological treatments are not in sight, this new research field is considered very promising to reestablish neuronal circuits in a pathologically affected brain using functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Especially, this symposium addresses the topic of magnetogenetics, which is an alternative approach arising to the field of optogenetics.
