Optogenetic approaches allow the activation or the inhibition of genetically prescribed populations of neurons by light. In principle, optogenetics offers not only the ability to elucidate the functions of neural circuitry, but also new approaches to a treatment of Parkinson disease, epilepsy, autism and anxiety disorder as well as recovery of vision and auditory perception. A major hurdle for focusing light through biological tissue on a single neuron is the occurring scattering of the light. We demonstrate the correction of the scrambling by an optical phase conjugation using digital optoelectronic techniques.
