Lighting up the reward center: Light-sensitive proteins are inserted into specific brain cells. Blue: dopamine-producing cells in the reward system in the ventral tegmental area. Red: cells carrying the inserted protein in a mouse brain. Yellow: Overlap between cells that are carrying the optogenetic protein and those  that are dopamine-producing.
