Organic light-emitting diodes for optogenetic stimulation of Drosophila larvae

Research output: ResearchConference contribution


Open Access permissions



Optogenetics is an emerging method in biology that enables controlling neurons with light. We use organic light-emitting diodes to stimulate neurons in Drosophila larvae and investigate subsequent behavioral changes at different light intensities.
