Ed Boyden PhD, Associate Professor, Media Lab and McGovern Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology is exploring how light can be used to treat neurological diseases using non-invasive devices and genetic engineering.  He talks about the emerging field of neurotechnology, bringing together problem experts and solutions experts to find cures and treatments for brain diseases, and the need for more investigation of the mind/body connection.  I talked with Ed at the recent Future of Genomic Medicine Conference held in La Jolla CA by the Scripps Translational Science Institute.
