Congratulations! Teleopto contributed to a research published on Science.

Dr. Miyamoto et al, showed that perceptual memory consolidation requires top-down cortico-cortical input during None-REM sleep with the use of Teleopto.

The group applied Teleopto to inhibit cortical neuron during sleep and demonstrated how NREM sleep consolidated memory.

This is another exciting moment for us as our products helped our customer’s research.

Top-down cortical input during NREM sleep consolidates perceptual memory.

While still a very new technology, results have been published in Neuron and Molecular Brain showing Teleopto’s utility in experiments that would be difficult to perform with traditional tethered systems:

Dr. Murayama’s group used Teleopto to provide bilateral illumination to the mouse somatosensory cortex during experiments in Y-mazes and place preference cages. This allowed them to suppress tactile sensory circuits (M2 to S1 axons), thus degrading accurate sensory perception of tactile surfaces.
