Are you interested in utilizing patterned illumination in your neuroscience research and deciding what tool is right for you?

This paper will discuss several techniques of patterned illumination and their relative merits in an experimental setting, specifically the use of direct projection systems such as digital micromirror devices (DMD), holographic projection systems, and galvo-based scanning systems in combination with optogenetic constructs.

This paper will highlight the ways in which each of these techniques compare across several important variables, as well as commenting on important considerations that pertain to the use of each techniques in common neuroscience experiments.
