Optogenetic neuromodulation refers to the process of genetically engineering specific brain cells so they respond to light impulses as if they were electrochemical processes. The field can be used to study the structure of the brain, and to create neural interfaces via grafts of modified brain cells into an existing neural structure.

A new tack in neuroprosthetic interfaces is being born out of pulses of light rather than electricity. Termed 'optogenetic neuromodulation, the technique is being pioneered in the hope that it will enable a far greater level of accuracy and single-cell stimulation than is possible with electrode interfaces.
