How does it work?


Optogenetics, in general, is a medical field studying cell activity via light. Optogenetics has been widely used at the beginning of Parkinson's disease and ending with the treatment of blindness. Let's discover some applications of optogenetics.

Optogenetics allows the controlling of the neurons of mice with minimally invasive methods. This method opens the doors of neurology to the study of the neural network, particularly the study of pain. For example, suppose the electric current had disadvantages such as non-specificity. In that case, optogenetics allows you to stimulate more specific neurons, as a result of which the patient's chronic pains can be treated.


Moreover, optogenetics allows you to control the optical control of ion flow generating, for example, a secondary messenger. As a result, The development of this technology will make it possible to control cell signals and, for example, to decide when cells will differentiate.


One of the uses of optogenetics in neuroscience is the treatment of epilepsy. Treating epilepsy in an invasive way is challenging since specific neurons are involved in this disease, and a network of neurons may also be affected. Optogenetics makes it possible to target neurons more precisely in this regard, and this effect on the mammalian hippocampus is one of the most critical steps in studying epilepsy.

Optogenetics seems to be part of the engineering world that studies the effects of light on objects, but for medicine, it is more of a light on the future, opening the doors to the unknown secrets of the human body.

It is mandatory for people with a high risk of medical complications or people with an acute allergic reaction to have a medical card with them to provide more detailed information in case of an emergency ambulance. But, after all, we are people. Patients may forget the card, lose it, or even damage it, for instance by pouring. coffee. It is possible that a person lost consciousness when he went out, for example, for groceries. Caring out a stack of papers is not a convenient option.

Wearable devices have evolved to the point where a tattoo as thick as human hair can replace entire medical records. The technology itself is based on the principle of operation of electronic chips. This is not just a code showing medical data, but a full-fledged device that collects medical data automatically and stores it in itself. The data collection patch is bendable and therefore does not provide discomfort to the person.

How to solve the problem?
Any technology that uses communication has the potential to be attacked by hackers. Of course, clients may fear that their medical data could be stolen by hackers. However, this problem may be solved by granting representative rights to a nurse or family doctor who consents to the extraction of your data if necessary and it is impossible to extract the data without their consent. For example, it is possible by signing smart contracts via Cybersecurity Mesh.
