Optogenetic control of heart muscle

Researchers learn how to steer the heart—with light

We depend on electrical waves to regulate the rhythm of our heartbeat. When those signals go awry, the result is a potentially fatal arrhythmia. Now, a team of researchers from Oxford and Stony Brook universities has found a way to precisely control these waves – using light. Their results are published in the journal Nature Photonics on 19 October.

LaTeX support

The site now has the WP QuickLaTeX plugin installed. This lets us use much of the functionality of \LaTeX in posts and pages and is activated by including the tag '[latexpage]' somewhere in the post/page. Equations can be shown inline (e.g. f(x) = x^2) or in display mode as with eqn 1:

(1)   \begin{equation*} 	\boxed{f(x) = x^2} 	\end{equation*}

It will also let you add advanced contect like tikz or pgfplot figures. Rendering is done by the QuickLaTeX.com server.
